GOING BACK TO HIS ROOTS

After his stint in 2009 on "So You Think You Can Dance" and "Australia’s Got Talent," Omaji decided to leave behind his stage name "Timomatic."

He said in a 2015 interview that his old moniker sounded robotic. As the years went by, he felt that the name did not fit him anymore. He wanted people to know him by his Nigerian birth name

Omaji, who appears to be still single, revealed in 2018 that he has a crush on award-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o.

Along with his name change, Omaji shared that he ended his relationship with his former “So You Think You Can Dance” co-star girlfriend, Talia Fowler, in 2014. 

Omaji lost to Fowler in the Australian version of the popular dance competition. They were romantically involved during the 2010 musical show "Fame the Musical."

Omaji, who appears to be still single, revealed in 2018 that he has a crush on award-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o. However, the singer, who did not reveal any details about his present dating life, seems to be prioritizing his career at the moment.

Like Omaji, iconic rapper Lauryn Hill and Rohan Marley’s daughter, Selah Marley, is making a name for herself as she continues the family’s legacy in making beautiful music. 

The 21-year-old model and singer is not only the daughter of one of the living legends of rap music and neo-soul genre, but she is also the granddaughter of reggae star Bob Marley.
