Nearly ten years after their highly publicized relationship and subsequent break-up, Timaya is speaking on the aftermath of the affair that saw him withdraw the gift he gave Empress Njamah when they were still a couple.
He was speaking on a radio interview with Daddy Freeze when the matter came up. Timaya revealed that he was only talking about it now because he had now become a reference point for men who withdraw gifts they give their girlfriends after the relationship ends.
“I’m saying this now because of the comments people make when they say ‘You buy gift you go go collect am like Timaya”. I’m sorry that was my car,” he said.
He went on to explain that their issues stemmed from repeated accusations of cheating by Empress.
“We woke up one day, she woke and she I dey cheat on am…different girls, and I asked her with who, she called quite a number of names, popular people that I didn’t think of and I didn’t do shit with. There was one other popular actress that comes to my house regularly, and she dey tell am. At some point, we had a misunderstanding and we broke up and I even heard about the part where they said I went to the church to beg her,” he said.
He continued: At that point she wanted me to get her a Murano, and at that point, a friend of mine came home for Christmas and brought a Murano, and he was going back and wanted me to buy the car so I was like ”you like this one” she was like she doesn’t like this one that she wanted a particular one from the United States. So I gave my friend the money to buy the car. Then a girl got me a Honda Pilot for my birthday, just a fan…”
It turned out that by the time the car he ordered for her would be delivered, they had broken up and he felt a need to return the initial car he gave her to his friend. According to him, Empress refused to give it back.
“I tell Empress make she give me the car make I return am back to the lady, Empress tell me say she don use the car settle herself. I was looking for her, that’s why I went to the church. I went to the church because it is my car, I had the spare key, I wanted to drive the car, so the security guys come dey look me, na I tell them say, but that’s my car, na my girl, Empress na carry this car come this church, so they said I should go inside the church and call her and I said I can’t go inside when there is a service going on, so na from there the chaos happen.”
The two have since made up, however, and has moved on with their separate lives. Timaya now has three children for two relationships while Empress too is yet to officially marry.
