Temmie Ovwasa, a Nigerian singer who was previously known as YBNL Princess, has recently shared her troubling experiences with her former record label boss, Olamide, and his wife, Aisha Adebukunmi.
The singer, who hails from Kwara state, revealed that she was treated as a subordinate and made to run errands while she was signed to YBNL.
Ovwasa also claimed that Adebukunmi would publicly humiliate her during their outings together, referring to her as “poor.”
Additionally, the singer accused former YBNL in-house producer, Pheelz, of negligently misplacing a drive containing her unreleased album.
Taking to her Instagram story, Ovwasa wrote, “I got into the music industry to sing, Olamide carried me on his head and paraded me as the ‘princess’ but once the cameras were off I was in a house with his disrespectful a$$ classist wife who made it her mission to remind me that I was a poor girl that they brought from Ilorin to change her life. I’d go out with this woman and she’d humiliate me publicly! When people ask for pictures she made it her mission to remind me that I was broke.
“It’s not enough to ‘help’ people, don’t add to their problems!!!! I kuku never tagged him [Olamide] on the video that he saw [that he signed me]. I never cared to be associated with you people. I really just wanted to sing!
“I recorded over 25 songs and Pheelz opened his wide mouth to tell me he misplaced the hard drive. 25 songs!!!!! [I] spent 5 years [at YBNL] and released 4 songs! I have recorded and released three albums since I left these people, and I have so many songs I could drop an album every week!”
