Timaya Says He Gave Up On Education After He Scored 17 In JAMB

In one of his earliest tracks, Enetimi Alfred Odom, who is popular as Timaya, the Egberi Papa 1 of Bayelsa, mentioned that his late banker father wanted him to follow in his footsteps and became a banker but that he discovered his talent which is music and decided to follow his dreams.

Little did we know that the Dem Mama Soldier was a dullard in school where he scored a dismal 17 marks in a Joint Matriculations Examinations that qualifies one to get into a university in Nigeria.

In a confession during a show recently, the Bum-Bum crooner said he actually decided to give up on education because he knew he will never make it after he scored a paltry 17 marks in the exams.

Hear him:

Education is not for me; it is important, yes, but not for me.

I scored 17 in JAMB, that was when I gave up. I don’t have the brain for education but for those of you who do, please do it, its good.

Well, his decision to do music has brought him game and fortune and he can easily afford to employ any graduate he wants.
