A US–based lady on Instagram has accused popular musician and self-styled Egberi Papa 1 of Bayelsa, Enetimi Odon otherwise called Timaya, of rape.
The allegation was made on Thursday in a series of posts on Instagram.
According to Punchng.com, the posts was sent under the identity, ‘ExposingtherealTimaya,’ and consisted of screenshots and audio recordings from previous conversations between the duo, continuing till Saturday.
The allegation sparked mixed reactions from the musician’s fans. Timaya, it was alleged, committed the act while in the US for a show.
One of the posts by the lady read: “You are a rapist. I will make sure the world knows it. You might want to cancel your show and get out of Atlanta because I am going to the police.”
She followed up with a reply from Timaya which read: “I don’t hurt people, but if you want me dead, then it is fine. I leave you to God. No problem, I will leave the town as you advised; I am taking myself off the show.”
But it seemed the lady’s anger sparked off when Timaya did not keep to his word as he went ahead with the show, contrary to his previous reply. Furious, she wrote: “Timaya what you did was wrong, and you know it. Just because you are a star does not give you the right. Yet you still went ahead and did your show while I was hurting.”
In yet another post, the lady also accused Timaya of threatening her life. According to her, it was not her intention to expose him, but his threats forced her to do so, adding that he was not remorseful for taking advantage of her and threatening her.
In response to the threat, the lady whose identity is unknown, wrote, “Who are you; that’s a threat. This is not Nigeria, you will never see the light of the day behind bars.”
Timaya however denied the allegation insisting that what they had was 'consensual sex' and not rape.

I have been talking with this girl for about one year and its funny how someone you think you know can act very hungry and low.how can i leave Nigeria and go to America where the law works to rape anyone?Am i crazy?.
This girl who had been promising to blow out my brains with sex when she sees me begged to see me when she knew i was in town but i didnt know that she had a hidden agenda.I agreed to see her and she came to my hotel in Atlanta and we got down for real .When we were done and we were chilling,I got a call from my manager that we needed to start preparing for a show.She asked to go with me to the show as a couple but i said no and told her i was there to work.
I got up and started preparing for the show but i realised her phone wouldnt leave my face and she kept asking me stupid questions and even as i answered i wondered what she was up to ,then it hit me that she was recording and i grabbed her phone and we struggled cos i wanted to delete the videos she had made without my consent..I dont even know if she still has any but i deleted the ones i could on her phone .
I called the hotel security and explained what had happened to them .I told them to open her phone so that i could see what she had left but she refused and was making a scene and the hotel told her to get out but i didnt want her to go cos i was scared of what she might have recorded and i insisted on calling the Police but the hotel told me that if i called the police,i might be arrested for holding her hostage in my room so i let her go.
After then she kept calling me and she kept changing her story telling me that i raped her ,i tried to play it cool by begging her not to to take the route she had taken ,i really begged her but she told me i had to pay her 50k dollars for her to forget about it,she obviously didnt record that part because she had ulterior motives.
After her demand for me to pay her,i stopped calling her or taking her calls and i changed my number and she i guess she got frustrated and went on the internet to try and do damage.
I Timaya cannot be a rapist..NEVER..I have daughters and i have a conscience.I can never be a voice that rapes and if i am so pressed for sex,i know how to get it,I will never take sex when a girl says NO.
I am a young man that is doing very well and i guess she had expectations that i didnt meet up to and she decided to use rape because she knows thats the fastest way to bring anyone down.
I wonder why she also went to open another instagram when her real handle is @officialshella_b
Since she called me out using my name and pic and if she wasnt lying she could have done same and provided proof of some sort of injuries gotten from any physical altercation.She carefully used the conversation i was begging her not to ruin my career cos i was trying to play it down”.
