Timi Dakolo revealed that he is against having children outside wedlock.
Timi Dakolo, a talented Nigerian vocalist, recalled how he grew up without his parents, but with his grandmother. He said he will be to his children a father he never had.
Timi Dakolo disclosed that he does not like the idea of fathering children outside wedlock because it would have a negative effect on the children.
I want to watch my own children grow; I don’t want them to pick up bad habits. The way the world is now, children pick things from everywhere. I am one of the people that don’t support children going away to boarding house; I want to see my children come back to my house every day, so as to assess them continuously. I talk to my children as friends, and they tell me everything that is going on with them. I had one philosophy while growing up, that I want to be the father to my children that I didn’t have. I want to do everything for them that nobody did for me, so they don’t miss the point.
Timi Dakolo claims that his children are also music inclined.
yes, my children have different kinds of talents. My second daughter likes singing; my only son is very good with his hands, and he has started learning how to play the piano, and the last girl is always asking questions.
Timi came to limelight when he emerged winner of the inaugural season of Idols West Africa in 2007, at the expense of the amazingly talented Omawumi Megbele.
