Nigerian Artiste Timi Dakolo has denounce claims that He is a gospel Musician.

He pointed out that his style of music is diverse, emphasizing that he cannot be boxed into a particular genre.

The ‘Iyawo mi’ crooner spoke in a recent interview with Cool FM Nigeria, Lagos, hosted by OAP Dotun.

The host asked:

“People kind of categorize you into gospel. Are you a gospel musician?”

Dakolo replied:

“I am not, by any chance. I always say to people, ‘Is there a gospel banker or architect?’ It is you that decided that is what you want to do. Art is art.

“I am just an artist. In fact, I am not an artist; I am a creator of art. You cannot box my music into a particular genre. I am much more than a wedding singer. ‘Great Nation’ and ‘Wish Me Well’ are not wedding songs. If you listen to my new album, you are going to hear that . ‘Men Of The South’ is a song about cultural pride.”

He added that he performs at gospel events because he is a Christian.
