Dem Mama is an Afro-pop song written and recorded by Nigerian recording artiste Timaya, released in 2007 as the sixth (6th) track on his debut studio album True Story.
The subject matter of the K. Solo-produced song is focused on the destruction and massacre meted out on the indigenous people of Odi community of Bayelsa by the Nigerian Federal Government in 1999.
Dem Mama instantly became the album’s biggest hit, topping charts locally in Nigeria and all over Africa, giving Timaya the much needed boost and street credibility which he has maintained to date.
The success of the song led to the establishment of Timaya’s own record label, Dem Mama Records -with its artistes being referred to as Dem Mama Soldiers.
