“Westwood’s show is surely top 3 radio shows of my generation … I can’t not mention the clubs. Under 18 raves at Stratford Rex, even driving down to Southend to his parties with him and Goldfinger. Hip-hop and Bashment all night. Girls free all night… A model I think a lot more club nights should get down with.”
Ben Cooper, Radio 1 Controller said:
“I’d like to thank Tim for the last 20 years on Radio 1. His passion for hip-hop is legendary. I wish him all the very best.”
Music is his life! But is he Gay?
Well let’s begin with an interview he gave to the Guardian, he mentioned:
“Music is my passion, this is my love, and this is all I do. I don't have a family, I don't have the pressures of kids, and I live for it. My thing is the relationship with the music and with the artists and, bottom line, with the audience - that keeps my energy level to where it's at. I am not tired of it, the hours are long but whatever, man. If I worked nine to five in a bank not only would those hours be long, but I'd be bloody worried about my job right now.”
Married, Wife, or Girlfriend?
This shows the affection and attachment he’s got towards music. Moreover, he has also mentioned that he has no family which clears gives a sign that he is neither married nor has kids, and It was not revealed that he has to date with a girlfriend. Maybe !One thing which pumps his energy levels is music and the audience who love to see him perform music and make them groove all over his beats.
But time and again question arise if he is gay. And why not? He tweeted back in 2014 giving a hint to his fans worldwide.
