The Choir Boy That Became A Star By Accident Ft Timi Dakolo

As the third season of Tea With Tay begins to wind down, Taymesan is joined by electrifying soul singer, Timi Dakolo who shares with Taymesan how his journey into music began— surprisingly, by accident. Raised by his late grandmother much like Tay, Timi shares extensively on his colourful childhood growing up in Port Harcourt. In Tea With Tay fashion, we’re intimated on Timi Dakolo’s music origin story and how he grew up as the choir boy whose voice was too different to be appreciated by members of the choir to become the winner of the first ever West African Idols music contest. That win was however his first step on a long journey to stardom as Timi had to conquer his lack of knowledge in the art of making music, by learning how to write music, an act through which he graced the airwaves with several evergreen songs. On this episode, Timi’s humorous Port-Harcourt persona takes center stage and we meet the Timi Dakolo we never knew while being regaled with stories
