“He messed up my mind” – Singer, Temmie slams ex-lavel boss Olamide again!

"He messed up my mind" - Singer, Temmie slams ex-lavel boss Olamide again! 2

Temmie Ovwasa, a Nigerian musician, has made new charges against her former record label boss, Olamide, claiming that he’messed up her mind.’

A fan asked the singer if she still keeps in touch with the YBNL head during a question and answer session on her Instagram account.

In response to the question, the young lady claimed that, despite giving her a platform, Olamide turned down all of the deals and shows she was offered. Her prior boss, according to Ovwasa, also prevented her from releasing music.

She said; “That man (Olamide) brought me to Lagos from Ilorin as an 18-year-old, put me on a platform then proceeded to reject every show I got, every offer I got. Stopped me from releasing songs, kept me in his house with his wife (who spoke to me like I was garbage in front of her friends) and kid in the name of ‘family’. Put my face on the wall, on an album where the ‘men’ were allowed to be people.”

“He messed my mind up then tried to compensate for it. I let it die because I do not enjoy talking to his minions or being associated with them. Why would I be in touch with him? You see all your idols and think everyone should worship them, but forget that they are real people capable of doing real things.”

In response to another fan’s comment, “Would you still love to make a collaboration with Olamide after the whole issue is over?” Ovwasa stated that she does not want to be connected with men who abuse their power.

The singer said, “My trauma is not a ‘whole saga’. You all forget that people feel things and what might seem like gist to you is actually somebody’s lived reality.

I don’t crave fame and I do not want to be associated with men who use their positions to hurt others while carefully curating their public presence to reflect values they do not uphold.”

“Might seem surprising to you but I do not want to be associated with your faves. They are people of questionable character and I have no space in my life for anything that does not serve me. I have tasted fame, been around multimillionaires and I can tell you for a fact, I don’t rate them.

“I would love to collaborate with women, with artistes from marginalised communities, with nonbinary artistes, queer people; people who can understand art beyond capitalism,” Ovwasa said.
