Nigerian singer and songwriter, Timaya (born Enetimi Alfred Odon), has been called out on Instagram by a lady who claims the musician has raped her.
According to the unidentified lady who is based in Atlanta – USA where Timaya is currently touring, the musician raped her in a hotel room, later begged her for forgiveness, and threatened to deal with her.
However, Timaya has denied raping the lady in question. According to her, they had consensual sex. He added that, he had been talking to the lady for about a year and the lady had promised to blow out his brains with sex, to the point of begging to see him when she heard he (Timaya) was in Atlanta.
After chopping down the lady, Timaya recounts that he realized her phone was all over his face, asking stupid questions. According to him, he then grabbed the lady’s phone so he could delete the videos when he realized she was recording him without his consent.
In his words, the lady demanded an amount of $ 50,000 as ransom in order to forget about the whole alleged rape saga.
Read below what Timaya said exactly concerning the whole rape case when she was interviewed by SDK.
“I have been talking with this girl for about one year and it’s funny how someone you think you know can act very hungry and low. How can I leave Nigeria and go to America where the law works to rape anyone? Am I crazy?
This girl who had been promising to blow out my brains with sex when she sees me begged to see me when she knew I was in town but I didn’t know that she had a hidden agenda. I agreed to see her and she came to my hotel in Atlanta and we got down for real .When we were done and we were chilling, I got a call from my manager that we needed to start preparing for a show. She asked to go with me to the show as a couple but I said no and told her I was there to work.
I got up and started preparing for the show but I realized her phone wouldn’t leave my face and she kept asking me stupid questions and even as I answered I wondered what she was up to, then it hit me that she was recording and i grabbed her phone and we struggled cos I wanted to delete the videos she had made without my consent. I don’t even know if she still has any but I deleted the ones I could on her phone.
I called the hotel security and explained what had happened to them. I told them to open her phone so that I could see what she had left but she refused and was making a scene and the hotel told her to get out but I didn’t want her to go cos I was scared of what she might have recorded and I insisted on calling the Police but the hotel told me that if I called the police, I might be arrested for holding her hostage in my room so I let her go.
After then she kept calling me and she kept changing her story telling me that I raped her, I tried to play it cool by begging her not to take the route she had taken, I really begged her but she told me I had to pay her 50k dollars for her to forget about it, she obviously didn’t record that part because she had ulterior motives.
After her demand for me to pay her, I stopped calling her or taking her calls and I changed my number and she I guess she got frustrated and went on the internet to try and do damage.
I Timaya cannot be a rapist. NEVER. I have daughters and I have a conscience. I can never be a voice that rapes and if I am so pressed for sex, I know how to get it. I will never take sex when a girl says NO.
I am a young man that is doing very well and I guess she had expectations that I didn’t meet up to and she decided to use rape because she knows that’s the fastest way to bring anyone down.
I wonder why she also went to open another instagram when her real handle is @officialshella_b
Since she called me out using my name and pic and if she wasn’t lying she could have done same and provided proof of some sort of injuries gotten from any physical altercation. She carefully used the conversation i was begging her not to ruin my career cos I was trying to play it down.”
