Timaya is inspired by a woman’s anatomy.

Timaya, born Alfred Inetimi Odon, has revealed the source of his inspiration. He says studying women’s buttocks inspires him and he is unapologetic about that.

“I love the woman backside because it is very beautiful and just by staring at it, I get ideas for songs, and that is how songs like 'Ukwu' and 'Shake Your Bum', came about.

“However, I also sing about many other things so it is balanced.

"A lot of people are hypocritical because songs about bums usually have the highest downloads but people would come out to criticize them.

"So who is downloading them?

“I have learnt that you can never please everybody and I don’t waste my time trying to do that. I stay true to myself, and if you’re cool with it, it’s okay. And if you’re not down with it, that’s also okay. Life goes on.” He said.
