What fatherhood has taught me — Timaya

Life experiences before becoming a father may have taught Timaya series of lessons that have shaped his perception about life; but none of these experiences taught him valuable lessons about love and patience as much as fatherhood.


Speaking to Showtime in a chat, he admitted that fatherhood has taught him so much about love and patience.

“Fatherhood has taught me a lot about love and patience.”

He added that though he bore his daughters out of wedlock, they have been a source of his biggest blessings in life.

“Not at all, fatherhood has not deprived me of anything; it has been one of my biggest blessings”, he told Showtime.

Contrary to thoughts that he may have regrets for having children out of wedlock, he confirmed otherwise.

“I have no regrets; everything has been a lesson and I’m grateful for them. I can’t think of anything I’d change if given the chance to go back in time.”

‘Don’t be around when my patience runs out,’ warns LeBron

Speaking further, he emphasized why it is important for parents to understand their children, trust and guide them in their career decisions.

“I think it’s important to understand your child and then trust and guide them with their decisions”, he said.

Not only did the ‘Bum Bum’ crooner reveal what fatherhood has taught him, he also revealed what stardom has taught him.

“Stardom has taught me to stay true to myself, understand my purpose; because when I do, it gets a bit easier to navigate through all the stuff that gets thrown at me”, he concluded.
