Guhinduka mushya mu bugingo ntibyabaye mu ijoro rimwe kuri uyu mugabo w’umugore umwe n’abana batatu. Nyuma y’imyaka 18 yamaze akora mu kigo gishinzwe kurinda umutekano aho yarindaga abahanzi bakomeye nka Diddy, 50 cent, Pamela Anderson, DMX na Jennifer Lopez, ntibyari byoroshye ko Tim ahara umushahara ngo yinjire mu ivugabutumwa.

Uwari umukoresha we icyo gihe yabaye umukuru w’umutekano muri studio Loud Records, ari na bwo yamuhaye akazi ko kurinda abahanzi bakomeye.

Tim rero yahise atangira kugendana n’abaraperi, yurira indege akarara mu mahoteli akomeye. Hashize imyaka 15, Tim yabonye igitangaza cya Yesu Kristo ubwo se yamaraga ibyumweru 2 muri coma biturutse ku mpanuka ya moto ariko akaza gukira.

Se rero yavuze ko yasenze Imana ngo yohereze abamarayika 2 bakomeye bamurindire umwana (Tim), maze uyu musore aza kubona imbaraga z’Imana ubwo yacungaga umutekano. Yatangarije The Christian Post ati “Nari muri stade ndinze abahanzi, abafana nka 70,000 barimo kogeza. Uwo narindaga yiroshye mu kivunge cy’abahanzi, kandi nabaga ntegetswe kumwirukaho. Ndavugisha ukuri ndetse mfite video yabyo. Abafana batandukanye nk’inyanja itukura mbanyuramo…”

Nyuma yo kwitegereza video y’ibyabaye, Tim yabonye ko harimo igitangaza cy’Imana. "Ndeba iyo video, naravuze nti ‘Hari jyewe, hari uwo nshinzwe kurinda, ariko hari n’undi wahigitse aba bantu kandi si umwe, ahubwo nib a bamarayika babiri bandindaga!’ Ntushobora kubabona, ariko urebye mu nzira yacitse hagati mu bantu wababona. Nk’umwana, nahise menya yuko ba bamarayika data yansengeye ngo bandinde bari aho bakora akazi kabo.”

Tim kandi ngo ntiyigeraga atinya ibyo yahuriraga na byo mu kazi, kuko buri gihe yasomaga Zaburi ya 27 kandi agafata igihe gihagije cyo gusenga mbere yo gutangira akazi. Aho kurangarira abagore babaga binyuzeho basohoka baninjira mu modoka yagendagamo arinze abahanzi, Tim yeguraga Bibiliya ye akayisoma kuva ku ntangiriro kugeza ku rupapuro rwa nyuma. Ku bwe, atangaza ko iyo ataza kugenda muri ayo mamodoka atajyaga kubona umwanya wo gusoma Bibiliya. Icyo rero ngo kuri we cyari igihe cyiza.

Mu mwaka w’2003, Tim yahuye n’ikigeragezo ubwo yari arinze 50 Cent bakamufata bamurega gutunga intwaro. Hashize umwaka wose Tim ari mu butabera mu rukiko rw’i New York City, agatangaza ko Imana yizeye insinzi Imana yamuteguriye akiri mu mashuri abanza.

Ku bw’igitangaza rero, Tim ngo amaze gutabwa muri yombi yasanze umunyamategeko mukuru wo mu mujyi wa New York Bwana Frank Lieto bariganye, ibyo rero ngo byamweretse ko Imana yari yarateguye kera kumukiza mu gihe nk’icyo. Tim yakomeje gusengera urubanza rwe ngo ruzagende neza, amara umwaka wose asenga.
