Timaya Gives Condition For Him To Shave His Beards

Popular dancehall singer, Timaya, has been keeping his beard and it has become his trademark but he will be wiling to have it shaved for just one condition.

In a chat with Saturday Beats, Timaya said he shaved off his dreadlocks for a reason but he would not shave off his beard for any reason, except if he was offered $100m (about N36bn).

The “Ukwu” singer said, “ Maybe $100m would make me shave off my beard. Other than that, I won’t shave it off until I feel like it’s time. I have been keeping the beard for about five years.

“ When I cut the dreadlocks some years back, I felt it was necessary at the time. It represented where my mind was at, at that time. It’s also rather important to keep reinventing (yourself), to stay relevant.”

The self-acclaimed Egberi Papa 1 of Bayelsa further spoke about being a single father and balancing it with headlining shows around the world. The father of three said he never jokes with his children and that their births would continue to mark the happiest days of his life.

He said, “My children mean the world to me so making out time to be with them, teaching them and watching them grow, is a priority for me. I don’t joke with that. My happiest days on earth would be the birthdays of all my children. ”

For over twelve years, Timaya has done well in the Nigerian entertainment industry as a singer, but while some of his colleagues have also started acting,he told Saturday Beats that he had no intention of doing that.
