A beggar, Eze Odinaka, popularly known as Mama Uka, has said she started her entertainment career as a singer before she ventured into begging.
Odinaka, who recently released a new single titled, Hold on Tim, he said, “I’ve been making music since 2011. I just got back into music; to do it in a professional way. At one point I stopped music and focused on begging.”
Describing her music style, Mama Uka said, “My music style can be described as slow tempo hip hop with a mix of afro highlife. However, I am versatile; and I can do other genres when I want.”
About the song’s message, he said, “The song is basically about marriage. He advises listeners to make sure the person they want to be with is worth it; as well as keeping the vows made to the person. The song begins with a question: ‘Will you be there for me when I’m down?’? “Durotimi” means “stay with me” in Yoruba.
