From Nigeria comes a new track to the Hip-Hop music scene
Titled ‘To U’, Timaya lyrically sets the objects of his message towards hallowed heights. It is a song of reminiscence and praise. ‘To U’ brings to mind ‘Kokoroko’, one of Timaya’s earliest musical deliveries, featuring the late Kafee, which turned out to be a musical sensation, apparently for the reason that it comfortably sits astride Afro-Pop and Gospel and strongly bearing a cultural flavor hard to go unnoticed.

Over the span of time, Timaya has gained a firm place in the contemporary Nigerian music scene and a reputation for being the poster child for musical excellence from the Ijaw nation of Nigeria’s Niger Delta. Like in all of his songs, whatever the artistic climate in which it is inspired and composed, cultural elements of the Niger Delta are strongly perceived in his delivery just as it is perceived in ‘To U’.
