When he found out I was homeless, Timaya gave me his penthouse. – Skales

Dancehall star Timaya reportedly broke down in tears when he learned of the difficulties he was having after leaving Empire Mates Entertainment, according to Nigerian Afropop singer Skales.

He remembered being made homeless after his record label contract expired and was not renewed.

The singer of “Shake Body” claimed that he was compelled to sleep in his Ford Explorer SUV because he was without a place to stay.

In an interview with media personality Chude, Skales revealed that the only things he owned at the time were his studio, clothes, and shoes.

He went on to say that he kept working with Timaya, who was unaware of his situation because he kept it hidden and went about his daily life as usual.

The ‘Je Kan Mo’ singer claimed that despite spending so much time with him, the ‘Plantain Boy’ crooner felt bad for knowing that he was homeless.

He claimed Timaya subsequently gave him permission to temporarily occupy his empty penthouse.

Skales said; “Yes I was homeless. I wasn’t making money, as at that time, I wasn’t making money, it was only Banky and Wiz. I mean I was making money but it was not plenty. And I was also a young chap still trying to figure out life.

So I’m like, I don’t have guidance, I’m just in these streets by myself, really. Even though, as much as I hate to blame whatever mistakes on that, but really I didn’t have no guidance, I didn’t have much money, the house I was staying, they rented it, so when the deal was off, I had to leave.

You know, so I didn’t know what to do, I hit the streets and I’m not much of a going to be begging anybody for anything. Just still believed okay I have to keep going, I had just this Ford Explorer, my studio is my baby so I had my clothes, my shoes in the boot. I mean I didn’t have much because everything I had in the house was theirs. I could just drive to anybody’s house that’s my friend, anytime we finish work, I’ll always make sure I leave late.

“So after I finish doing work, which was mostly with Timaya, I’ll just go to my car and pass out, the next morning, I’ll probably pull up in the house like ‘Yo I want to use your bathroom, I only have my toothpaste and my brush then I’ll just go brush my teeth real quick. I was good vibes so everybody wanted me around you know. But only myself and one of my friends knew what I was going through but a lot of people didn’t know.

“So one day, Timaya found out and he actually cried, he felt so bad because I was always with them, I was always chilling, and he didn’t know what was going on. So when he found out, he was like, there’s this penthouse that he doesn’t use for anything, he now told me to move in there.”
