‘Jesus Never Got Married’ – Timaya Says: Speaking in an interview with Olisa Adibua and Maria Okanrende on Beat FM in Lagos on Tuesday, Bayelsa-born dance-hall star, Enitimi Alfred Odom, popularly known as Timaya, made a controversial statement on marriage as well as his relationship status with his two baby-mamas.
According to TheCable who monitored the interview, he said on his relationship status: “I have a baby mama and a serious relationship with my son’s mom.”On what he thinks about marriage, the singer said: “I’m not saying I don’t want to get married. I am not ready. Jesus Christ died at 35. He never got married.”
He additionally revealed why he neglected to sign Patoranking and Runtown to his Dem Mama record name in spite of giving them their first breaks in the music business.
He said he didn’t understand the music business when Patoranking and Runtown were under his wings. “I didn’t understand the business at that point,” Timaya said.
“I don’t want anybody to be like they are doing it because they are not in a good spot. Whatever I did for them, I did it like ‘okay, let’s go’.”
Timaya further said he does not regret not signing the pair, despite their respective successes in the past few years, and when asked if he could consider adding them to his record label, he said: “They are bosses already.”
The singer attributed his ability to make successful records to God, saying: “Nobody knows how to make hits.
“I don’t even know. I think it’s just God and secondly, when you work all the time, you have a lot of songs, you need the right people around you to tell you the right songs to put out so I don’t feed myself with bad energy.”
