"Dreams: looking at how far I have made it, I can't believe I made it through all the stages and phases of the competition and all the experiences have just been good, and sometimes bad. I wish my grandma was around most of all to see what has become of her favorite grand son.I have dreams and I know the living God will make them come true. Thanks for all your love cuz without u all I can't be the Timi Dakolo I am.In the famous words of Martin Luther King, "I HAVE A DREAM THAT ONE DAY"… "
Timi went home with a 26inch flat screen LG TV, DSTV dish with 3 months free subscription, 10 thousand dollars cash, Kia Picanto, and a recording contract with Sony BMG.
This is just the beginning of great things to happen to TIMI. I hope his talents and humility take him to the top where he belongs. May God be with him every step of the way...amen!
