One of the few enviable ‘bromance’ that exist in the Nigerian entertainment industry is the one that exists between popular Nollywood actor, Jim Iyke, and ace singer, Timaya.

In a chat, the actor revealed why he loves Timaya and described him as the brother he never had. 

"Timaya and I are kindred. He is one of the most open-hearted and kindest people I have seen. To love Timaya is easy and he is like the brother I don’t have. 

"Anyone that is in your life and tells you things the way they are, it is easy to love that person.

"It is when you are afraid of criticism that you cannot make friends with Timaya because when I go wrong, I ask him if I made the right move and he tells me the truth that I did not act right and that I messed up.

"When I am getting things right and people are criticising me, he tells me that I am doing the right thing. If you look through his history, he is the most consistent artiste of all time.

"He is the most consistent with every tide, trend, competition and level he meets it and surpasses it.

"People may never term him the number one in the industry but how many people can remain relevant in the entertainment industry for almost 12 years?

"Why would I not want to be friends with such a person? It is the same thing with me. 

"Timaya understands the business I do, he loves it, calls me sometimes about some of my business moves and I am always happy to explain them to him.

"We call each other to share business ideas. For instance, if he buys a property and begins to build a house on it, I would ask him the reason behind the business move and he would explain."
