Timaya Talks Why He Refused to Renew His Endorsement Deal With MTN

Timaya told Punch that he wanted more than what he was offered by
the telco company.


According to Timaya, “I have always wanted to become an
ambassador to a telecommunications company and I was
approached by both Globacom and MTN. I chose MTN. I am a
businessman and I feel I should have a better deal this year.”
Timaya also said “If the deal is not good enough for me, then
it is not right because I worked very hard to get to the stage I
am. It could be right for other people but I think I should do
better this year. There are some artistes that are brand
ambassadors and they do not have any hit song. They are just
there based on pity.

“Every year, I release a hit song and I feel if we are to renew a
contract, we have to revisit the terms and conditions. Not that
we would do the same thing as the last time or do it out of
pity. Being a brand ambassador makes you limited in some
certain areas and I expect to be paid for such limitations. I
want more. They are good people and we did not have any
misunderstanding. It was purely a business decision,”
