“Timaya cried when he found out I was homeless” Skales recounts his struggles (Video)


The senior colleague of Nigerian artist Skales, Timaya, reportedly broke down in tears when he learned of his homelessness.

He revealed that after leaving E.M.E., he was left homeless since the label had evicted him from his rented home in an interview with Chude Jideonwo.

He claimed that his only possessions at the time were his Ford Explorer, his studio, his clothes, and his shoes, and that he spent every night in his car.

He was constantly working with Timaya, who was unaware of his struggles because he was skilled at masking them.

But when the ‘Ukwu’ singer learned about it, he sobbed and felt guilty because Skales had always been at his side. He observed that despite frequently hanging out with him, Skales was unaware of his troubles.

Skales further revealed that Timaya had offered him his penthouse which he wasn’t using.

“Yes, I was homeless.

I wasn’t making money, at that time. I wasn’t making money, it was only Banky and Wiz. I mean I was making money but it was not plenty. And I was also a young chap still trying to figure out life. So I’m like, I don’t have guidance, I’m just in these streets by myself. Even though, as much as I hate to blame whatever mistakes on that, but really I didn’t have any guidance. I didn’t have much money, the house I was staying, they rented it. So when the deal was off, I hit the streets and I’m not much of a going to be begging anybody for anything. Just still believed okay I have to keep going, I had just this Ford Explorer, my studio is my baby so I had my clothes, and my shoes in the boot. I mean I didn’t have much because everything I had in the house was theirs. I could just drive to anybody’s house that’s my friend, anytime we finish work. I’ll always make sure I leave late”.

“So after I finish doing work, which was mostly with Timaya, I’ll just go to my car and pass out, the next morning. I’ll probably pull up in the house like ‘Yo I want to use your bathroom, I only have my toothpaste and my brush then I’ll just go brush my teeth real quick. I was good vibes so everybody wanted me around you know. But only myself and one of my friends knew what I was going through but a lot of people didn’t know.

So one day, Timaya found out and he actually cried, he felt so and because I was always with them, I was always chilling and he didn’t know what was going on. So when he found out, he was like “There’s this penthouse that he doesn’t use for anything, he now told me to move in there”.
