Who Is Timbo?
Timbo is a south London artist who composes a genre cocktail of Afrobeats and Hip-Hop. The “Afro-Hop” sound was first brought to the public eye in 2012 in a friends bedroom studio.

Initially inspired by friends, Timbo’s music career has been motivated and further enhanced by the success of African legend Fela Kuti as well as modern artists like Wizkid and Skepta. Timbo’s STP group (Stack That Paper/Struggle To Proceed) have gone on to make a series of Mixtapes and singles alike.

Timbo definitely has big ambitions and has a good work ethic that makes them more realistic.
I would like to have the influence and legacy of artists such as Michael Jackson and Fela Kuti
Studying at university and trying to focus on music at the same time has been the biggest challenge for Timbo so far as they’re both very serious commitments which require a lot of time and effort. Despite this, during this time Timbo released one of his biggest tracks entitled ‘Ringtone’.

Probably still recovering, Timbo was on tour with Fuse ODG which he describes an amazing opportunity.
I was able to perform at venues and cities I’ve never performed at before. Having the audiences dancing and singing along is a great feeling.
Be sure to stay tuned on 9bills for Timbo’s next ventures. We know his next release will be entitled “Cheetah”!
