He said this while chatting with Punch News
in a report published on Saturday, March 23, 2019. Some years before
the interview, he had cleared off his dreadlocks because he felt it was
time.
Clearing off his beard will also require an
inspiration and it could be money. Keeping it for this long has been
deliberate — it is all part of reinventing himself.
“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.”
Old wine in new bottle
Staying fresh is a mentality for Timaya who dropped an EP, “Chulo Vibes” in early February.
He is glad about the reactions that it has
received. It is a reward for his effort in trying out new things. Making
his fans happy is part of the motivation behind his evolving
personality, encouraging in him a desire to learn about what is trending
particularly in music.
“It has been amazing so far and I am very
happy about the positive feedback I have been getting. Chulo Vibes is my
first project in five years.
“I’m happy about the reception and the
progress so far. I have remained relevant in this industry for over a
decade because it is important to keep reinventing oneself.
“I feel like as an entertainer you should
never make your fans get bored with your music, your performances, and
so on. You must always give them a way to stay excited about your brand,
your music, performances, everything.
“Also, music, just like everything,
changes. I’m always listening to new sounds and learning about new
shifts and ways to keep my music relevant.”

American superstar rapper, Nicki Minaj, shares the same sentiments as myriads of Wizkid fans and well-wishers worldwide, in that she concurs to the argument the trendsetting crossover record-breaking single from Wizkid’s 2020 released “Made In Lagos” album, Essence should be in the conversation for the coveted “Record of the Year” plaque at this year’s Grammy Awards.

Although “Essence” did not receive the much desired nomination in the category for “Record of the Year” at the 2022 Grammy Awards, it did get a nod for Best Global Music Performance, the first of its kind.

Irrespective of the snub, Nicki whilie on Joe Budden TV (YouTube) as a guest on the special episode tagged A Conversation With Nicki Minaj & Joe Budden agreed with the host (Joe Budden) when he said “We need people on the Grammy board that know that “Essence” was song of the year” with an exclamatory “Right! Right!” response. She even proffered, “We should have our own Grammy Board“, in support of many and the popular believe that Black Americans or black artistes in general are always stereotyped to a particular category at the award show, if indeed they made it to the top categories, they barely win; Nicki Minaj does not have a Grammy Award herself and that is still a shock to many, especially when considering her refined catalogue of music.
