Former YBNL signee, Temmie Ovwasa, has again called out her former boss, Olamide Adedeji, over her alleged maltreatment as an artiste under his record label.
Ovwasa, who was fondly known as YBNL Princess, while reacting to the sudden death of the late singer, Ilerioluwa Aloba, a.k.a Mohbad, shed more light on what life was as a YBNL signee.
According to her, she lived in Olamide’s home, where she became an errand girl/nanny for his wife, Adebukunmi and their child.
Ovwasa, in the series of posts shared on her Instagram page, alleged that not only did Olamide refused to fulfil his part in the record contract signed far back in 2016, but he also humiliated her with the album art for the 2018 YBNL joint project YBNL MaFia Family.
Ovwasa was the only featured artist whose avatar was omitted and replaced with a photo of her face hanging off the wall.
Speaking on MohBad’s sudden passing, Ovwasa noted that the pressure placed on artistes by fans and labels alike can be damaging.
She added that so many artists have been labelled addicts and ingrates for daring to speak against injustice in their respective record labels.
“I came to Lagos to sing. Your structureless label put me in a house with your wife, and she turned me into her freaking errand girl.
“Do you know how wild it is to answer ‘yes ma’ to a girl who is just two years older than you because you need to get your life on track?
“And don’t even get me started on the shady political affiliations that I can only keep quiet about if I don’t want to be ‘unalived.’
“Last last, I’m not Nigeria’s sacrificial lamb, and that one is not my story to tell. I hope MohBad rests in peace. You people have ‘unalived’ him. Go and eat his body.
“But I honestly will not forget this one. I can’t. He spoke up. We usually do but we are all addicts and ungrateful artistes. Continue.”
