Inetimi Timaya Odon was born on 15 August 1980 in
Rivers State. He grew up as part of a
large family; the youngest of fifteen children in Agip
Port Harcourt. His father was a banker and his
mother was a trader. For his early education, Odon
attended Assemblies of God Nursery And Primary School. His secondary school education began at Nkpolu Oroworukwo in Port Harcourt. He would
often break house rules to attend late-night music
events. Before Timaya could graduate from school, his
mother arranged for him to travel with his older
brother and older sister to Lagos. After moving to the
city, he gained admission into Lagos' Ikeja Grammar
School, where he eventually obtained a secondary school certificate.

performed poorly in examinations and dropped out after first semester. He then moved back to Lagos
to join Eedris Abdulkareem's hiphop group as a backup vocalist. After three years working for
Eedris, Timaya departed from the group to focus on
his solo career. He began to record collaborations
with fellow up-and-coming artists and made his first
cameo appearance in an unreleased music video by UDX, a Lagos-based rap group. He subsequently
met producer Obaksolo in Mafoluku, Oshodi, who
produced his first major hit record "Dem Mama" after hearing him perform the a cappella version.
Describing the song in an interview posted on August
2013, Timaya said: “Dem Mama” was an account of
the 1999 destruction of Odi, a river side community in
Niger Delta. Soldiers were hunting down militants
they alleged killed eight policemen. The village was
burnt down and numerous people killed. I bravely
tackled the issue years later and won instant street credibility for my boldness."
After the success of "Dem Mama", Timaya decided to
continue with producer K-Solo. He recorded seven
more songs for his first album True Story, which was eventually released in 2007. Later that year,
Timaya began work on his second album with
producers #Phyno, Jeggs, Spankie, Akeem D Beat, Obaksolo and #Terry G. In 2008, the album titled
Gift and Grace was released into stores nationwide.

Year" at Nigeria Music Awards and "Best Reggae/
Dancehall album" at the
Headies Awards. He also
received two awards "Best Reggae/Dancehall album"
for Gift and Grace and "Best Collaboration" for his feature on J Martins' "Good or Bad (O Wey)" at the 2009 edition of The Headies. Two years later,
Timaya released his third album, De Rebirth and its
success-themed lead single "Plantain Boy". The
album's production was handled by Akeem D Beat,
