Nigerian veteran singer, Timaya has released a brand new single titled, No Pressure. The record was complimented with a TG Omori-directed music video.
Since the beginning of 2022, ‘No Pressure’ has been frequently used as captions by Timaya on social media, especially on Twitter and Instagram, unknown to many that he’s dropping hints on his forthcoming record. The veteran singer has finally delivered his first official single for the year and it is tagged, No Pressure.
Basking on the success of his previous output ‘Cold Outside’ featuring BNXN (formerly Buju), Timaya shares his solo debut for 2022. On the Afrobeats tune, Timaya urges everyone to be calm under pressure. He sings, “me no want nothing give me pressure, something to cool my blood pressure” on the AyZed-produced instrumental.
Timaya has been a solid pillar of Afrobeats for so many years. Ever since he dropped his debut album back in 2007, he has mastered his craft, delivering proper hit records year after year, which he never misses. Could this be his first hit record of 2022? Time has the answer!
Furthermore, the picturesque music video was shot in Lagos, Nigeria, directed by high-profile video director, TG Omori.
Recall that the talented singer was invited by police last week after he was accused of hitting a lady and leaving her on the road.
Damilola while narrating her side of the story in a post on Instagram said Timaya after hitting her left her in the pool of blood.
She accused Timaya of dragging her on the road, while she sustained injuries on her face, knees, right hand and some other parts of her body.
According to Damilola, she was rushed to a nearby pharmacy where she managed to reach out to her husband who then took her to Reddington Hospital.
The hit-and-run victim in a post on Instagram wrote, “Not only that he dragged me on the road where I sustained injuries on my face, my two knees, my right hand, all my acrylic nails forcefully pulled out before I knew it, he ran away leaving me in my own pool of blood.
“Then passerby rushed me to a nearby pharmacy where I managed to call my husband before I was later taken to Reddington Hospital where I received about 15 stitches on my face and another treatment was administered before I was later discharged later in the evening and was taken to General hospital for further treatment.”
Damilola also accused the singer of bullying her when she confronted him for hitting her car.
She wrote, “How can you tell the whole world you didn’t notice you hit a car? I knocked on your side window to draw your attention only for you to bully me as a woman.
“Timaya Inetimi @timayatimaya you are wicked and heartless. You painted your wicked act of hit and run with emotion.”
The victim who stated that Timaya wouldn’t have reacted if he wasn’t called out on social media said, “Your conscience will continue to judge you cause you intentionally hit me off with your green G wagon boasting that you are a celebrity.
“Your lawyer came and sympathised with me in the general hospital at about 10:30 pm and your lawyer said this is too much for someone to let it slide.
“The pains you inflicted on me by your recklessness and no respect for womanhood. The permanent scar you inflicted on me intentionally. All I want is justice as he isn’t feeling remorse because he should not go scot-free to serve as a deterrent for others.”
