Is Timaya Married?
No. Timaya is not married, hasn’t been, and has decided never to get married in his life. The famous singer said in a post that he is considering being like Jesus, who never got married. With this, he has decided to remain single for the rest of his life.
However, unlike Jesus, his decision to remain single doesn’t mean he will be celibate. The star has had a thing or two with several women and has fathered four children from his involvements with these women.
Timaya’s Baby Mamas and Past Relationships
The famous Nigerian Singer has three baby mamas: Barbara Fumnaya Nwaokolo, Tamar, and Dunnie Onasanya. He has had some kind of relationship with each of these women, which resulted in pregnancy. These three women are the ones that gave birth to the children he has today.
In addition, Timaya has been in other relationships, although they did not produce any children. Let’s look at each of these baby mamas and find out how many children each of them gave birth to.
1. Barbara Fumnaya Nwaokolo
Barbara is the first woman that gave Timaya a child. They met sometime before 2012, and their daughter, Emmanuella, was born in 2012. While they were together, Timaya tried to stick to one woman but failed at it. He even had to promise Barbara that he will not have children with other women apart from her, but the outcome is history.
They welcomed their second daughter, Gracey, in 2015. Later on, they broke up for reasons bordering on infidelity on Timaya’s part. In 2017, they came back together after Timaya promised not to have anything to do with another woman. This reunion didn’t last long as Timaya fathered another child with another woman. Their relationship subsequently hit the rock, and they went their separate ways.
While Timaya and Barbara were still together as lovers, he rented an apartment for her in Ikeja, Lagos State. He also gifted her a car, GL 450 4MATIC worth N13 million. Barbara is now in another relationship with another man and does not deny the girls some time with their father.
Tamar is Timaya’s second baby mama and the reason why Timaya and Barbara’s relationship hit the rocks. She gave birth to Timaya’s first and only son, Emmanuel, in July 2018. Before getting involved with the singer, Tamar was a widow, and her marriage produced a child.
Tamar has an interior decoration showroom in Lekki, Lagos State, which was opened for her by Timaya. In addition, he bought her a Range Rover jeep.
3. Dunnie Onasanya
Dunnie Onasanya is an event producer, visual studio artist, and muralist who is currently based in the US and works as an instructor at the VisArts Centre, Rockville, USA. She is Timaya’s third baby mama and the mother of his fourth child, Maya. She gave birth to her in May 2020. Before her relationship with Timaya, She had previously been married with a daughter. Her marriage with Ibrahim Hassan ended in 2018 for reasons bordering on domestic violence.
Apart from these relationships, Timaya has been involved with other women. However, these other relationships did not produce a child. Some of the people he has been involved with are the famous Nollywood actress, Empress Njamah. This was his first open relationship that got fans talking when they were together. Timaya also admitted that he had had another relationship with a lady a bit older than him before getting involved with Empress, but they kept it a secret.
