Why I can’t date Nigerian women – Timaya


Popular Nigerian musician, Timaya revealed that he can’t date a Nigerian woman because the relationship would be too toxic.

The singer appeared as a guest on the recent episode of The Morning Rush on The Beat 99.9FM. There, he asserted that Nigerian women are not his spec when it comes to relationships

Timaya gave his uncensored view of love, highlighting the need of appreciating individual tastes in romantic partnerships.

“You have to know who to love. A person may not be right for you, but they’re not wrong either, you feel me,” he expressed, highlighting the subjective nature of romantic connections.

The Afrobeat sensation said, “I don’t have a problem with Nigerian girls or Nigerian men. If I was a Nigerian girl, I won’t date a Nigerian man. And myself right now, I can’t date a Nigerian girl.”

When questioned about the nationality of the woman he is currently in love with, Timaya responded emphatically, saying, “Hell no.”

“I can’t date a Nigerian girl because of the same foundation and upbringing. The relationship would be like police and thief, it’s too toxic. We go dey lie for each other too much, wetin happen. Even when something no dey wrong, you go dey find problem,” Timaya added, shedding light on potential challenges arising from shared cultural backgrounds.
