As we speak the fashion buff extraordinaire and lover of good automobiles is at the semi-final stage in the construction of a palatial edifice that would leave mouth agape when it reaches the final stage.

The ambitious building is set on a sizeable expanse of land and it is a storey building of a few floors. It would be all glass if Timaya has his way. It is planned to be as opulent and stand out as possible, an edifice fit for a king and an entertainer of his status.
Since bursting unto the charts a few years ago, the Bayelsan born musician has remained relevant on the scene, making sure to release as much as 2 or 3 certified hits every year. Most people wouldn't forget such hits like Ukwu, Bum Bum, Sexy Ladies, Plantain Boy etc in a hurry, those were certified bangers.
Apart from hits, he is also a consummate stage artist who has stage presence and loads of fans/followers.
That he is building this edifice is a testament to the change of fortune that he has since experience via music.
