Music stars at times find it difficult to sustain their relevance when they aren’t fortunate to release hit songs. Nigerian pop star, Timaya has however said that hasn’t been his story.

The Afropop star recently revealed that he gives his fans hit songs every year.

“People don’t understand that making a hit song doesn’t mean you are a star. Stars always shine, some people can make a hit song and you will never hear of them again. There’s no year I’ve never dropped a hit song.

“I don’t want to be number one. I just want to be a musician. A lot of people have come and gone but I’m still here”, he said in a chat with Soundcity FM.

The dancehall crooner also slammed contemporary Nigerian singers for referring to themselves as legends after making music for 10 years.

“To me, in this industry, the only person that can call himself a legend is 2face. The others shouldn’t. Even if people call me a legend, I don’t like to be seen like that.”

When asked about his opinion on marriage, he said: “If I want to get married, I will not do a big gathering. One thing is to get married, the other thing is to stay married. Staying married is the hardest part.

“Do you know what it means for two people with different upbringings to come and start staying together? That’s not a joke.”
