I was backup singer for Eedris Abdulkareem for years – Timaya

Nigerian singer, Inetimi Alfred Timaya Odon, simply known as Timaya, has revealed that he was a backup singer for his colleague, Eedris Abdulkareem for 3 years.

He said his experience as a backup singer for Abdulkareem played a vital role in his career.

Timaya said Abdulkareem will always remain his boss despite them no longer in communication even though they are not quarrelling.

He said, “I was a backup singer for Eedris Abdulkareem for 3 years. I gathered what I learnt from there and went back to Port Harcourt. I realised that with the knowledge that I have, I’m not promoting [my music] from Port Harcourt but Lagos even though I was living in Port Harcourt. Because to live in Lagos at that point was too expensive for me. Even to do a promotion.

“So, I needed to go back and start from my foundation. I left Port Harcourt after I blew. Even Burna Boy, I told him he had to leave Port Harcourt. If you blow up in a place, you have to leave there and love them from afar.

“Eedris Abdulkareem will always be my boss but we don’t talk… Not like we are quarrelling.”
