Timaya -” Local N Bougie” Stream & Download
Timaya attended Assemblies of God Nursery And Primary School. His secondary school education began at Nkpolu Oroworukwo in Port Harcourt. He would often break house rules to attend late-night music events. Before Timaya could graduate from school, his mother arranged for him to travel with his older brother and older sister to Lagos. After moving to the city, he gained admission into Lagos’ Ikeja Grammar School, where he eventually obtained a secondary school certificate.
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.
‘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 “Local N Bougie”. 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.
