After not making waves academically, Egberi Papa 1 of Bayelsa entered into music and is certainly an inspiration to thousands of youths across the country with his endless string of hit songs and his ‘grass to grace’ story.
Timaya spoke on this titbit during his eclectic performance at the 3 stage of Star Music Trek which held in Uyo on April 12 2014.
“Education is not for me,” he confessed, “It is important YES but not for me”
“I scored 17 in JAMB, That’s when I gave up. I don’t have the brain for education but for those of you who do please do it its good.” He further stressed.
Even though he doesn’t consider himself being able tomake it academically, he encourages youths to take it serious
