Nigerian singer Timaya is well known for his dress sense but in recent times he has decided to be clad in bathrobes even in his music videos. The Bayelsa born singer told Saturday Beats he isn’t trying to impress anybody.
Also the “Ah Blem Blem” crooner said he was a better father to his kids than some married men. He said the following:
“People fail to understand that a lot of baby daddies are better fathers than a lot of husbands. The kind of role I play in my children’s life, I don’t think some husbands do that.“I have time for my children, I love my children but some married men don’t even have time for their kids. They don’t show their kids love, they don’t know what it means to be a father. It doesn’t have anything to do with money; it’s about love and attention.
“The bathrobe is not a fashion statement. A lot of people know I dress well and even appreciate my style and fashion sense.
“The bathrobe thing started one morning when I woke up. I told myself that I am not trying to impress anybody and that I needed to be me. I am a happy man, I am fulfilled, I can wear my bathrobe to anywhere. I was on bathrobe during the Headies Awards and I also travelled from Nigeria to Turkey wearing it too.
“I don’t think any musician has the kind of clothes I have but I don’t have to prove anything to anybody. Young people try to impress others and that’s why their lives are filled with problems.”
