Social media users had quite a field day of gossip earlier today after Temmie Ovwasa, popularly known as YBNL Princess took to microblogging platform, Twitter to accuse YBNL founder and rapper Olamide of snatching away her hope of becoming a big artist in the Nigerian music industry.
On Monday, she tweeted:
In her accusation, Temmie blamed Olamide for allowing her to release only four single and four videos in five years that.
Adding further, Temmie alleged that her growth with the label is limited because of their “misogynistic and homophobic” nature.
According to her allegations, all her shows were cancelled by Olamide for no reason and she never complained, rather, she was grateful.
How the fuck do you keep a child you brought to Lagos all the way from ilorin in a house for almost 5 years without allowing her drop anything for 3 years, You rejected all my shows for no fucking reason. And I was nothing but grateful because at least I dey YBNL.
She further claims Olamide has sent his fans to bully her into silence:
Mixed reactions has since trailed Temmie’s accusations. While some praised Temmie for speaking out, others used examples of other successful artists from the YBNL label and slammed her as ungrateful.
As at the time of filing this report, Olamide is yet to respond to Temmie’s allegations.
In April 2016, Olamide disclosed that YBNL was welcome its first female member in the person of Temmie.
In a 2016 interview with Punch, the Delta State born singer narrated how she was contacted by Olamide on social media. In her words:
“I used to sing and record covers of different songs, which I post on Instagram. In August last year, I uploaded a particular video of a song and realised that Olamide had liked all my videos. People erroneously thought I tagged Olamide in the video but I have never believed in tagging celebrities to get recognition.”
