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.”
