Timaya Reveals Why He Didn’t Sign Patoranking And Runtown
Popular Nigerian singer Timaya has revealed that he failed to sign Patoranking and Runtown to his Dem Mama record label despite giving them their first breaks in the music industry, because he did not understand the business then.
The dancehall singer made this known during a recent interview with Olisa Adibua and Maria Okanrende on Beat FM.
While stating that he did not understand the music business when Patoranking and Runtown were under his wings, Timaya further said he does not regret signing the pair, despite their respective successes in the past few years.
“I did not understand the business then,” Timaya said.
“I don’t want anybody to be like they are doing it because they are not in a good spot.
“Whatever I did for them, I did it like ‘okay, let’s go’.”
When asked about the secret to his successful records, the singer attributed it to God, saying: “Nobody knows how to make hits.
“I don’t even know. I think it’s just God and secondly, when you work all the time, you have a lot of songs, you need the right people around you to tell you the right songs to put out so I don’t feed myself with bad energy.”
