Nigerian popular singer, Timaya, has stirred up controversies on social media after he was caught on video advising Phyno to have a child rather than get married since it is a failed institution.


With the growing rates of divorce scandals circulating the Nigerian entertainment industry, it is common to hear celebrities say they don’t believe in the constitution of marriage.


Perhaps, this is why baby mamas are becoming a growing trend. One of the top advocate for single parenting is Nigerian dancehall singer, Timaya.


The father of three children from different women has made his stand on marriage pretty clear. In a recent video currently circulating on social media, he is seen advising Phyno about having a child.


In his word: “Just born pikin, pikin go grow. All this marriage thing no dey work.” He said this amidst laughter.

The video caused mixed reactions on social media. While some people agreed with him, others however did not agree.
