With his victory, he got a recording contract with Sony BMG, in addition to other prizes. He has been called The Voice and is dubbed Nigeria’s King of Soul.

Everyone knows Timi is a sucker for singing romantic songs for his wife but this time the love song is dedicated to Nigeria. “Great Nation” reeks of great song writing which is one of his best tracks to date. Timi tells us how we can build a great nation through peace, unity, and justice. “We’re all we have, We’ll defend our land, We believe in this nation, and we know we’ll get there, We’re all we have, we’ll defend our land, We believe in Nigeria and the promise she holds, And that one day we’ll shine like the sun, We’re a great nation…”

‘Great Nation Lyrics’

Here we stand as a people
With one song, with one voice
We’re a nation, undivided and poised
We will take our stand, and build our land
In faith to defend what is ours

Here we are as a people
With one heart, for one cause
We’re determined to rebuild and restore
Where freedom reigns, and truth prevails
A land where there’s hope for us all
A land where there’s hope for us all

[Chorus]
We’re all we have
We’ll defend our land
We believe in this nation
And we know we’ll get there
We’re all we have
We’ll defend our land
We believe in Nigeria and the promise she holds
And that one day we’ll shine like the sun
We’re a great nation

Though we are many people
Different tribes, different tongues
We’re united in our strength and resolve
To uphold the honour of our land
And for generations to come
And for generations to come

[Chorus]
We’re all we have
We’ll defend our land
We believe in this nation
And we know we’ll get there
We’re all we have
We’ll defend our land
We believe in Nigeria and the promise she holds
And that one day we’ll shine like the sun
We’re a great nation
