Most of us are familiar with the Nigeran circular singer Olorunyomi Oloruntimilehin, better known in the music industry as Bad Boy Timz. Earlier on, he shared a heartbreaking incident from his past that almost resulted in the loss of his eyesight when he was just nine years old.
During a recent chit-chat with a Nigerian media personality based in the UK who goes by the name Adesope Olajide, Bad Boy Timz recounted the traumatic experience of being shot in the eye by assassins who were targeting his family in the Mushin area of Lagos several years ago.
Speaking on that, he said; “They were assassins, they didn’t even stop the car, they just shot the bullet and started spraying. It wasn’t a robbery and they were looking for an Igbo family. When they heard my mum say e je kin ko awon omo mi, they were surprised.
“It was me, my mum, my dad and my immediate older brother, it was just four of us in the car in Lagos, Mushin to be precise. They just overtook us and started shooting, they didn’t even tell us to stop and I got shot in the eye because they were targeting my dad’s head and it went straight into my eye.”
