Timaya says Innocent ‘2baba’ Idibia is the only one that can call himself a legend among the active artistes in the Nigerian music industry.
Timaya, real name Enitimi Alfred Odom, decried the situation where artistes start referring to themselves as legends after making music for a decade.
The Bam Bam crooner said this during a radio interview with SoundCity FM, stressing he wouldn’t even refer himself as a ‘legend’.
Timaya made the following comments:
“In this part of the world, many artistes when they get to 10 years, they start shouting ‘I’m a legend’, ‘legendary’.
“To me, in this industry, the only person that can call himself a legend is 2baba. The others shouldn’t. Even if people call me a legend, I don’t like to be seen like that.”
The 38-year-old dancehall star then argued that he is still the king of commercial music in the country.
