Timi Dakolo

In a recent interview with media personality Chude Jideonwo, Timi Dakolo, a well-known singer and songwriter, opened up about his experience of receiving his first-ever one million naira.

According to Dakolo, this generous gift came from a kind-hearted person who had seen him on television during his participation in the inaugural season of Idols West Africa in 2007.

Dakolo further expressed that this significant amount of money had a deep impact on him, causing sleepless nights and inspiring a transformation in his speech patterns.

In his words;

“There was somebody that gave me N1m from nowhere. I had never seen N10,000 before. The money I used to have then was always N1,300, N800, N1,200, and N520.

And somebody gave me N1m cash. He came to the hotel and gave me N1m. He said he doesn’t watch TV but he saw me on TV and he felt he should give me N1m.

“I saw N1m, I could not sleep. I was looking at the money. I said, ‘This money will change.’ I was speaking English that day. Me that used to disturb the whole place, I was quiet [sic]. I caught myself speaking good English.”
