Timmy Tdat landed his first radio job in March 2018. He hosted a daily show dubbed ‘Transit’ which aired from 3.00pm – 7.00pm alongside Mwalimu Rachel on NRG radio.
Timmy however ‘disappeared’ from radio just after a few months, speculations ran rife that the rapper had been sacked from his job.
The ‘Kasayole’ hit maker however dismissed the rumor saying that he opted to leave NRG radio on his own after weighing his options.
Music comes first
In a recent interview with Mzazi Willy Tuva, Timmy explained that he chose music over his radio career because music comes first to him and that he decided to be a full time musician after failing to strike a balance between the two.
“I love radio but my first love is music. Music has been paying my rent, its what keeps my mum happy and comfortable. Music is a jealous business and you cannot share it with something else,” said Timmy Tdat.
