Lead Entertainment

Tim Omaji

Tim Omaji is all about evolution – and in 2015 the dynamic singer, songwriter and performer is shedding “Timomatic” as he enters the next phase of his career. But he’s not so much as reverting to his birth name, Tim Omaji, as claiming it.

“I felt like everything in my creative life and, to an extent, my personal life was evolving to what I believed was a closer expression of who I am,” Tim explains.

“Everything naturally evolved but my name.” He came to view “Timomatic” as “an alter-ego”.

“But Tim Omaji is me.” Tim issued the first of several urban-dance hits in Set It Off – it reached #2 on the ARIA Singles Chart and was both certified four-times platinum and nominated for the ARIA “Song of the Year”. Last year Tim unveiled the avant-R&B single Delilah (featuring former Clipse member Pusha T), which he wrote with US producer Glass John. Tim touts it as “a new school Dirty Diana”. It intrigued the industry – and, yes, hipsters. The single is now out Stateside.

This year Tim will be presenting his most intimate – and visionary – project. “The upcoming album really shows my scope as a writer and as an artist,” he reveals. “It’s just a lot more honest and raw and organic.” He’s invigorated by change. “This is really Phase II, and the beginning of Phase II, I’m always evolving!”
