He was born Timothy Myles Nwakobi, As half nigerian half American .Although, from day one his father refused to call him anything besides “Mr. Wakobi.” Striving to wear the crown among top international musical talents, Timothy uses the inspiration of his father’s tenacity and belief in his son’s potential as the inspiration for his stage name.
Mr. Wakobi is currently working on his album with award winning producers, ID Cabasa and Archapello. Entitled Are U There….The Arrival!, the album is scheduled for release under the umbrella of CODEDTUNES and PRIMEDAY ENTERTAINMENT in the first quarter of 2012 in Nigeria and in the United States of America some time after that. He fully expects the album to strike a chord with his audience, not only winning fans for himself, but shining an international spotlight on the African music scene, Nigerian music in particular. “Doubt is the cousin of destruction,” says Mr. Wakobi. “The fact that I have this music, that it is out there and people are responding to it, to me this means I have already won.”
A consummate lyricist, Mr. Wakobi has been penning original words for as long as he can recall. Even the song that began his rise toward success as a musician, entitled “Goodbye,” was penned as a youthful reaction to a personal family crisis. He gains inspiration from his daily observations of the people and situations around him and his own personal experiences and trials, so he’s never far from pen and paper, taking notes and crafting bits of lyrics as he moves through his world.
While his handsome face and cool swagger has invited comparisons to Kanye West among others, the young rising star adopts a personal style that mirrors no one. With his education, wit, and charm—as well as impeccable manners and fashion-conscious dress—his persona is that of an international mover with love for his roots, a hip-hop James Bond for the 21st century who still holds a tight bond with his homelands.
