Timaya has declared that big booty inspires him,
which of course gives him inspiration and ideas to come up with a song .
The Igberipapa 1 of Bayelsa in a chat with Sunday Scoop said :
“ I love the human backside because it is very beautiful and just by staring at it , I get ideas for songs . And that is how songs like Ukwu and Shake Your Bum , came about . However , I also sing about many other things so it is balanced .
A lot of people are hypocritical because songs about bums usually have the highest downloads but people would come out to criticise them . So who is downloading them ? I have learnt that you can never please everybody and I don ’ t waste my time trying to do that. I stay true to myself, and if you ’ re cool with it, it ’ s okay . And if you ’ re not down with it , that’ s also okay . Life goes on, ” he said .
Revealing a side of him that is rarely seen , Timaya spoke affectionately about his daughters . He said ,
“ I did not know I could love anyone the way I love my children . I have a very wonderful relationship with my daughters and I relate with them a lot so they also see me as a friend .”
