Singer Alfred Inetimi Odon popularly known as Timaya has said he gets ideas for songs by simply staring at a woman’s backside.
In an interview with Punch, Timaya said he got the inspiration for his hits ‘ukwu’ and ‘shake your bum’ by staring at a bum.
He 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.”
The singer also revealed that he has an affectionate relationship with 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.”
