As Tima makes her debut with her first single,
what started as a quiet storm in January 2023 when she released it could end up a significant surge on Nigeria’s music landscape.
The single entitled, “Angels”, featuring Prince Miah, signals the beginning of the music career of Tima, a singer/songwriter who said in a line of the compelling lyrics in her new single that she was set to “defy the law of gravity!”
A statement by her Manager, Peace Akpakip, described the genre, as a mix of Afro rhythm and blues with a touch of soul, eulogizes the power and beauty of inner conviction and attentiveness to the small gentle voice.
“In a world where many young people are under a lot of pressure to conform or gravitate towards the crowd, I believe that reflection is a valuable asset,” Tima said. “It’s in light of this that I repeatedly described myself as a ‘rebel’ in the piece.”
The EP, dropping in May, also features Prince Miah, a young Nigerian artist based in Jos, Plateau State.
Tima, whose full name is Fatima Nda-Isaiah, is the daughter of the Founder of LEADERSHIP, Sam Nda-Isaiah. She is based in Abuja.
She started her singing career as a performer in her school band, but only singing covers of music by other artists. As time went on, she discovered her passion for writing music as well as singing.
“This EP”, a statement by her promoter said, “is a window into the type of multi-talented and versatile person Tima is. She wants to introduce herself as an artist willing to explore more than just Afrobeats and the EP really reflects that.”
According to her manager Tima’s desire is to make a mark on the Afro-music genre.
“I’m aware that beat is very important to young people, but I also spend a lot of time thinking about lyrics,
she said. “I believe that music, apart from being relatable, should also convey a positive message.”
The statement said Tima plans to release a sequel to “Angels” in May. Prince Miah, who also featured in “Angels”, is available on all platforms. Tima can be followed @timasingss; Facebook, Fatima Nda-Isaiah; and on YouTube, timasingss
