All hail the latest expectant father and mother. The yet to be officially married couple, Barbara and her baby daddy, Timaya according to words on the street are expecting their second child. Although the singer is yet to make an official comment on the development, but was confirmed by a close associate of the ‘Plantain Boy’ who told Pride Magazine that Timaya has been informed and he is very happy about it.
Unlike some of his contemporaries, crooner, Timaya love kids and had made several attempts in the past to have a baby without success. When this reporter beamed on Timaya’s past, it was discovered that Timaya once sacked his Abuja lover (names withheld) after she lost her pregnancy few years ago.
When the scan result revealed the sex of the baby as a male Timaya was said to have taken responsibility and pampered her with a five star treatment until she eventually lost the baby months after. He was then quoted to have said ‘she is bad luck’.
Following the turnout of events right now, the ‘Dem Mama’ crooner may be towing the line of his colleague, Peter Okoye of P-Square who had two babies with his lover, Lola Omotayo prio to their marriage. However in a past interview he granted a Lagos newspaper, Timaya told a reporter that marriage isn’t in his cards for now. In his words, “I am not yet ready to get married and anyone who is looking for that is only being deceived because I am too young to get married. Marriage is not all about money and nobody knows what I have in the bank because he’s not my accountant.
I am not prepared for marriage because I am not yet ready to sacrifice for any woman, I am sorry.
I don’t want a situation whereby I will tell a woman I want to travel somewhere and she would be complaining”.
All efforts to get Nnamdi Oluzor, Timaya’s manager to comment on his behalf were unsuccessful. His MTN line was switched off.
For the records, Timaya’s first daughter, Emmanuella was born in May 21, 2012 and he has lived up to his responsibility as a father ever since, that he once said, “My daughter is my life and I love her so much”.
