Inetimi Timaya Odon, better known by his stage as Timaya, a popular Nigerian artist, recently proclaimed his undying love for award-winning diva Tems.
Timaya stated this during an interview with Cool FM titled “Road show,” in response to a question regarding his thoughts on the current crop of Nigerian musicians.
In response, the ‘Cold Outside’ singer praised newer artists such as Rema, Fireboy, Tems, Ayra Starr, Ruger, and Buju.
He went on to tell a short anecdote about Tems and how seeing her photos on social media disturbs him.
“I love Tems, but do you know, I keep looking at Tems. She reminds me of someone when I was living at Abike Sulemon in Lekki Phase One. She was going to Dowen College and she comes out of my house, like the front of my house cuz she wants to see me.
Those days when she was in secondary school. So I look at her. Sometimes I look at her pictures like is she the one? Maybe it’s she, maybe she’s not.
You know when somebody will be like “ah, I’m a fan!” But look at her right now. She’s a great, super duper international superstar. I didn’t know she could sing you know, it’s crazy!”
