I’m not a gospel singer – Timi Dakolo

Singer Timi Dakolo

Singer and songwriter Timi Dakolo has clarified that he is not a gospel artiste.

The 43-year-old said this in a recent interview with Cool FM in which he stated that he cannot be limited to one music genre.

Timi Dakolo added that he is also not an artiste but a creator of art.

The host asked, “People kind of categorise you into gospel. Are you a gospel musician?”

The ‘Iyawo Mi’ star replied: “I am not, by any chance. I always say to people, ‘Is there a gospel banker or architect?’ It is you that decided that is what you want to do. Art is art.

“I am just an artist. In fact, I am not an artist; I am a creator of art. You can box my music into a particular genre. I am much more than a wedding singer. ‘Great Nation’ and ‘Wish Me Well’ are not wedding songs. If listen to my new album, you are going to hear that [my diversity]. ‘Men Of The South’ is a song about cultural pride.”
