Timaya -” Ebiola Papa” Stream & Download
Describing the song in an interview posted in August 2013, Timaya said: “‘Dem Mama’ was an account of the 1999 destruction of Odi, a river side community in Niger Delta. Soldiers were hunting down militants they alleged killed eight policemen. The village was burnt down and numerous people killed. I bravely tackled the issue years later and won instant street credibility for my boldness.
After 5 years of releasing singles, and touring, Timaya released an EP titled Chulo Vibes (2019). This project featured collaborations from East African artist Alikiba, Trinidadian Soca Legend Machel Montano and Nigeria’s Burna Boy who is also a talented Nigerian musician.
‘Gratitude’ is both Timaya’s most anticipated new album and his most unique collection yet. The 15-track piece is his 7th studio offering, and it sees him take center-stage of his rock-solid artistry with no guest features. For Timaya faithfuls, this album brings a heightened level experience of the goodness that the Bayelsa star’s music has come to be known for through his 15-year career.
The last project Timaya dropped was Chulo Vibes in 2019 and it spawned the hit, ‘I Can’t Kill Myself.’ His last single was ‘Win,’ with Falz. ‘I Can’t Kill Myself’ actually makes ‘Gratitude.’
DM Records boss, Timaya, has officially released a brand new single titled “Ebiola Papa”. The new song is off his just released seventh studio album project “Gratitude“. With optimum production from Orbeat, Spotless, Yung Willis, Ayzed, Chillz, Vybe O, Wildxyouths, Boombeatz, Krizbeatz, and Chrisstringz, Timaya takes us on a groovy journey into his bubbly lifestyle. This album is reallycool and amazing.
