Four years after THAT interview with Busola Dakolo – that inspired so many from across the world with the power of one woman’s voice – I sat down with her husband, my friend and creator of the theme song for our show, Timi Dakolo.
We of course talk about that iconic interview, how Busola’s voice gave me the courage to finally start this show, why I was reluctant to do the interview, how Timi was fearless in standing for, by and behind his wife – and how her life changed because she spoke up.
That courage is the defining value of Timi’s life. It helped him survive abandonment by his parents when he was a child, helped him leave Port Harcourt to Lagos to build a career, and gave him the strength to stand firm in his sound, even when everyone told him ‘Nigerians don’t listen to this kind of music’.
If you’ve been looking for courage and clarity in your life, I beg you to listen to this interview. It will fire up your heart strengthen your spirit.
Timi came with so many quotes to live by that I spent the conversation typing furiously.
