Two years ago, news of an alleged love affair between Nigerian dancehall star, Timaya and fashion entrepreneur, Lisa Walsh made rounds. At that time, Timaya declined to comment on the issue while Lisa simply went MIA.
A few days ago, our reporters ran into Lisa Walsh at an event in Lagos and quickly cornered her for a brief chat.
We gather that Lisa Walsh has been out of the country for a couple of years and had just returned to promote her new projects.
In her words, ‘yea, I’ve been away for while, I had to take time off to re-invent, re-strategise and re-launch some of my projects which includes a new website, a series of fashion shows and real estate’.
When asked about her alleged affair with Timaya, she responded saying, ‘just to clear the air, I have never dated Timaya He’s a friend an I’ve known him for over 7years, he’s actually a family friend. I feel people are just trying to make up stories, and I don’t think I am up for that right now because I am back to Nigeria for good to do what I know how to do best, helping people and pushing my business forward’.
In August 2015, you’ll recall that Timaya was in the news for allegedly raping a US based Nigerian woman called Shella – B who called him out on social media.
