Timmy TDat came on the scene as the skinny (yes skinny!) rapper with the catchy smash hit “Well Well”. I must admit that when I first heard the song I thought that the repetitive chorus was “Willy Willy” but now I know better.
So what is of interest about the artist today? Let’s start with a short history of his past year. Last year the rapper was employed by NRG radio for the afternoon show with Mwalimu Rachel. Could he really make the cut as a good co-host? That was one of the questions many would have been wondering?
But his stint was very short and he soon disappeared from the airwaves. Questions swirled about what had ensued. And let’s not lie, the overwhelming thought process was that he had been fired.
But Timmy isn’t entertaining that nonsense and decided to clarify for many what had happened. He spoke to Citizen radio’s Mzazi Willy Tuva, and explained what had happened.
I love radio but my first love is music. Music has been paying my rent, its what keeps my mum happy and comfortable. Music is a jealous business and you cannot share it with something else.
What is interesting about the rapper is that he is in the unique position of being one of the few artists who has worked as a radio presenter.
Considering the recent hullabaloo that started this week pitting radio presenters vs artists, I would like to see what he thinks about the issue (“si, you ask him?”, I will. Not only that, I want to know how he bulked up so quick from that skinny ninja in the “Welle Welle” video.)
