Timaya ushered Bayelsa into the new year in style as he celebrated the first Timaya Day since 2020 before the Covid era. On a day officially dedicated to celebrate Bayelsa’s first & finest son, January 1st is always a memorable day for Bayelsans and the Niger Delta at large. Very few entertainers can put on a show like the Egeberi Papa 1 of Bayelsa, and he sure did put on a show for his people who he has represented proudly from day one and his people showed out for him in grand style as over 25,000 fans gathered to celebrate their living legend at the Oxbow Pavilion Lake in the states capital; Yenagoa.
Recruiting some of the finest entertainers in Nigeria and on the continent who are now either his close friends or mentees of some sort, Timaya ensured Bayelsa had the finest New Year Celebrations in the country. With D’banj, Phyno, Tekno, King Perry, Portable and Ajebo Hustlers all gracing the stage while Sabinus hosted the show in his trademark comic style, they all delivered memorable performances which Bayelsans will hold dear for some time. The Governor of Bayelsa State (H.E. Douye Diri) & other notable House of Assembly Members were all in attendance to celebrate a son of the soil who has now become a statesman in his own right as he has continued to put Bayelsa on the Continental & Global map.
Timaya Day is also an event used to provide young artistes/creatives from the state with the opportunity to showcase their talents and get a platform on which to build from. As someone who first gained visibility from a talent hunt, Timaya has always been passionate about supporting the next generation of talents with a platform to show their skills to the world while also helping to develop the Entertainment Sector in the Niger Delta.
