Popular singer, Timi Dakolo has come out to flaunt a screenshot of heartwarming messages he got from his daughters, Zoe and Hallel, after he travelled.

His baby girls simply expressed how much they missed him, while praying for his safe return.

Reacting, Timi Dakolo revealed that when he is at home with them, all they do is disturb him throughout, but now that he is away, they can’t stop missing him.

His words, “When I am around now, they will make me shout all day. Small travel and They will now be loving me anyhow. #yardpeople @zoedakolo @halleldakolo”


Timi Dakolo (born; January 20, 1981) is a Nigerian singer. He emerged winner of the inaugural season of Idols West Africa in 2007. Accompanying his victory was a recording contract with Sony BMG, in addition to other prizes.

Timi Dakolo was born in Accra, Ghana to a Nigerian father, Bayelsa-native David and a Ghanaian mother, Norah, who died when Dakolo was thirteen years old. Despite being born in Ghana, Timi has a Nigerian passport and does not claim dual citizenship.

He was raised in Port Harcourt by his grandmother Ateni Dakolo and his aunt Susan Larry, and he credits his aunt as his early singing teacher. So deep was their relationship that Timi declined an offer to move to Lagos with his parents, opting to stay back in Port-harcourt with them.

In 2006, Dakolo auditioned for reality show Idols West Africa in Calabar. Timi Dakolo’s songs of choice were Commissioned’s More Than I and Lemar’s Time to Grow. His vocals impressed the judges, and he was seen as a contender for the prize. A week before the viewing of the Top 24 performances, Dakolo received the news that his grandmother had died.
