For every glory, there is a story. This is story of Nigerian musician, celebrity and superstar, Timaya.
There are throwback pictures of Timaya, the Egberi papa one of Bayelsa which depict more of his suffering stories than anyone else.
Inetimi Timaya Odon was born in Rivers state, he was the youngest child of 15 children family.

Timaya told his story some time ago that he was once a plantain seller, he had to hawk plantain to help his family, but today we all can see, he is already a made man.
