Yemi Alade hasn’t spoken for a while, but in a recent chat with online TV, Sunday Spice, the Johhny singer exposed the sexual rot in the music industry. According to her, show promoters and record label owners are guilty of this.
She also mentioned that she is highly disappointed in certain people in the music industry she looked up to when she started, but unfortunately they all wanted sex too.
“Record label owners and show promoters are all guilty of this. Sexual harassment comes in different levels; some are intense, some are subtle, and some even come through third parties. However, I’ve never found myself in a situation that felt very uncomfortable. Once I see the signs, I run and the person would not even have the opportunity to go through with his evil plans. There are some people who I looked up to in the industry but surprisingly, they also wanted sex”
The sultry singer also used the opportunity to clear the air on widely reported beefs between her and some of her female colleagues, saying it is all imagined.
“I don’t know why the media takes pleasure in pitting great women against one another. Have you ever seen any text message from any of us lambasting another person? There’s no proof of these things; it’s just in the imagination of people. I’ve never stopped working and I was already working before Tiwa Savage came to Nigeria. I am a fan of their music, and on my Snapchat page, I usually dance to their songs. I do not consider Tiwa Savage a friend because I don’t know her favourite colour or meal and other intimate things. She is just my colleague.”
It’s amazing what people go through on their path to stardom. And It is a shame what people with means do to upcoming acts in the entertainment industry. Celeb Police hopes more stars can share their experiences like this as we all look to putting an end to the evil practice.
Stay with us as we dig further to get a face to these people who are taking undue advantage of upcoming acts.
