Celebrities are reacting to the controversy surrounding a certain Mr Boniface Igbeneghu, who was caught red-handed as he offered a female UNILAG student sex for good grades.
The lecturer is the head pastor of one of the Foursquare Gospel Churches in Nigeria.
Reacting, Timi Dakolo said if this man prays and calls the name of Jesus even when he knows of his molestation tendencies, then which God is he really calling on?
His words, “Nowadays when someone is saying βI give God the Gloryβ We need to ask, Which God?”
Timi Dakolo (born; January 20, 1981) is a Nigerian singer. Timi Dakolo emerged winner of the inaugural season of Idols West Africa in 2007. With his victory, he got 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 of age. Despite being born in Ghana, Timi has a Nigerian passport and does not claim dual citizenship. Timi’s grandmother Ateni Dakolo and his aunty Susan Larry, who lived in Port Harcourt raised him, and he credits her 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 his grandmother.
Timi started singing in church at the age of twelve. In 2003 he joined the singing group Purple Love as a founding member. They dominated the Port Harcourt club circuit, but disbanded in 2005 as all its members had gained admission into the University of Port Harcourt. Around that same period, Timi won a local talent hunt contest G.E FACTO held in Port Harcourt.
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.
Timi Dakolo married Busola Dakolo in 2012. They have three children.
