One of the housemates in the ongoing Big Brother Naija reality show, Leo, has lambasted Nigerian superstar, Timaya.
He said even though D’banj and Timaya started their music career at the same time in Nigeria, it would be difficult to compare both musicians because the former Mo’hit star has done better than the Port-Harcourt-based artiste.
He said this while talking about music with another housemate, Rio.
He said Timaya used to be his favourite artist because of his good contents. However, he has lost it because all he sings now is ‘Bum bum’.
Rico replied that he did not have much Favourite Nigerian artist because they don’t sing meaningful songs.
He said that Nigerians artists can’t sing a song without adding, ‘Bum-Bum or boobs’ which he finds irrelevant.
He said, “D’banj is a legend who has affected the lives of so many artists in the country and has taken the country internationally.
“Although Timaya and D’banj started at the same time, you cannot compare them in anyway.”
When Timaya started, he sang reasonable song such as “plantain boy,” he said.
They also talked about Wizkid and Davido, whom they described as leading figures in the music industry presently.
Leo wondered how artists that sing only about ‘bum-bum and boobs’ can be a mentor.
“I think our artists can do better than that. People should learn from songs and not corrupting the young ones at home,” he added.
