No doubt the best things are discovered in the worst places. Timi Dakolo is a worthy example of the statement above.
Timi Dakolo who happens to be one of Nigeria’s most outstanding musicians is a product of Diobu, a certain area in Port Harcourt believed to be “the ghetto” in the city.
The superstar musician who was in Port Harcourt on Sunday, July 16 2017 for The Manifestation of David Wilson, yesterday decided to move around the city of Port Harcourt and one of the places he visited is a place significant to his existence, a place he lived for 15 years of his life, a place he calls home, a place called Diobu in Port Harcourt.
Below is a photo he (Timi Dakolo) shared on Instagram, the accompanying caption is so deep, could make one cry but then it tells you “There is a God and he is interested in your matter” – Timi Dakolo.
