So, let’s dig a little bit deeper into the amazing world of Timaya and try to place our finger on what’s his best songs so far as well as top albums and how much he’s worth. To the songs first.
Top Songs? Let’s Roll!
1. Bum Bum
Let’s start with this song. It’s one of his best. Released in 2012, it was so good that it got a remix with Sean Paul and it was one of the top songs of 2012. We dig it and still do.
2. Bam Bam
This was a comeback song for him or an affirmation song of sorts from him. Around that time there were talks of him dying down. Well, he addressed all that and linked up with Olamide on this. A solid song.
3. I Concur
This song with Don Jazzy ruled airwaves in 2015. It was one of those songs that made many a playlists and was played all over. It’s a natural for this list.
He was reinventing himself on this song and the experiment paid off as he has since gone this route a number of times since then and it has worked for his music.
5. Kom Kom
On this song, he lined up with his signee, King Perryy and Patoranking to create the magic that this emerged to be. He had fully experimented on his last song and this was more refined as a sound than the Sanko song and we love it.
This 2011 song was one of his earlier songs. He was still trying to find his feet in the industry then was singing more about his region then. A top song that can be said to be one of the songs that launched his career.
Released in 2013, this Masterkraft-produced song trended. I mean, he had had songs that reigned prior but this one was different and ruled the airwaves, clubs and playlists.
This is a recent song that is still making waves. It’s been on virtually all playlists and been played in most African countries. With over 10 million views on Youtube, it is easily one of his best and a natural for this list.
9. Telli Person
This song had him link up with Phyno and Olamide, two top indigenous rappers and they did justice to the song. It emerged as one of our favorite songs of 2017. Solid showing too.
10. Dem Mama
This song launched him into limelight. It captured the military invasion and destruction of Odi village in Bayelsa state. That song helped him gain relevance and there has been no looking back for him.
Reports say that Timaya is worth as much as $10 million dollars. He has endorsement deals with telecommunication giant, Globacom and Hennessy and is one of the in-demand artistes around and that’s not forgetting how much he charges to perform which is between 4 million naira and 8 million naira.
