J.Martins, Timaya end seven-year rift

Martins Okechukwu Justice, popularly known as J.Martins, and Inetimi Odom, otherwise known as Timaya, are now on speaking terms.

The two talented artistes, who had been at loggerheads with each other since 2014, were reunited by Paul and Peter Okoye, a.k.a P-Square.

As part of their effort to re-launch their career in the music industry after they both disbanded in 2016 due to family related issues, P-Square organised a concert on Saturday, December 25, 2021.

The event, which was well attended, had the likes of J. Martins and Timaya in attendance. The two were invited on stage to perform their hit collabo with the duo of P-Square. After an exciting performance of Good or Bad, a song released in 2008 by J.Martins in which he featured P-Square and Timaya, the twins reconciled both artistes.

J.Martins and Timaya drifted apart after Good and Bad became quite successful, winning several awards, including Hottest Single of the Year award at the Nigerian Entertainment Awards and Best Collaboration for feature at the Headies. At that time, Timaya was still basking in the euphoria of the success of his hit album, Gift and Grace.

He included some of the lyrics of his successful album in the collabo which made it more accepted. But the success soon faded away after J. Martins and Timaya disagreed over irregularities in the sales of Good and Bad, which were allegedly not commensurate with the success recorded and applause it received from fans all over the country.

Both stars accused one another of cheating and vowed never to work together again. They stopped speaking to each other and did not attempt another collaboration since then. However, after they were reconciled by P-Square, they hugged each other and sang the hit single to the admiration of their fans.
