Temmie Ovwasa, the singer formerly signed to YBNL record label, also known as YBNL Princess, has come forward to share her troubling experiences during her time with the record label.
In a post on her Instagram page, she made several allegations about her interactions with Olamide, the label’s boss, and his wife, Aisha Adebukunmi.
Temmie Ovwasa claimed that despite Olamide’s public support and portrayal of her as the “princess” of YBNL, her behind-the-scenes experience was far from glamorous.
She accused Adebukunmi, Olamide’s wife, of treating her poorly, belittling her, and constantly reminding her of her humble background from Ilorin.
According to Ovwasa, Adebukunmi publicly humiliated her and labeled her as “broke” whenever they went out together. She emphasized that her purpose in the music industry was to sing, but the treatment she received behind closed doors was distressing.
Additionally, Ovwasa clarified that she never tagged Olamide in the video he saw before signing her to the YBNL record label, suggesting that her association with the label was not something she actively sought.
Furthermore, she accused former YBNL in-house producer Pheelz of losing a hard drive that contained 25 of her unreleased songs. This loss, according to her, had a significant impact on her music career during her time with the label.
Temmie Ovwasa expressed her frustration over her limited music output during her five-year tenure with YBNL, stating that she has since released three albums and has a vast catalog of songs that could allow her to release albums regularly.
Her revelations shed light on the challenges and difficulties she faced during her time with the label, highlighting the need for transparency and fair treatment in the music industry.
