Omawumi Storms Out Of Press Interview
Omawumi Megbele is known to be an outspoken entertainer who doesn’t mince words when it comes to expressing herself. The self -proclaimed Wonder woman, showed her other side when she recently, stormed out of an interview session when asked about her smoking and drinking habit. The flow of the interview took a different route when the songstress was asked about her alleged smoking and drinking habit.
The interviewer had asked: “There is some controversy about you in the industry; that you smoke and drink. It’s amazing because young girls want to be like you but they are saying, how does she keep this drinking and smoking habit away from her kids?”
She became angered by the question and asked the interviewer if she had seen her smoke before.
“I will not honour you with a response. I feel that is a taint to my character. Have you seen me smoking before? Why should you ask me such a question? You see me as an artiste, I am contributing what I can. I make music the way that I should and I come here and honour your invitation and then you sit down and talk about my smoking and drinking to people that are listening? And you are supposed to mean me well, when these people are supposed to be the ones that are buying my music? Now, when you say that sort of thing, do you mean well for me? You can’t ask me to kill a rumour that you are not sure about. So first and foremost, as a rumour, you need to go and dig and get your facts right before you ask somebody something. I will maintain that if you have not seen me smoking and you come out and say it on National TV, that means you don’t mean well for me and that is the end of this interview. And you will publish it o.”
The issue has generated diverse opinions on social media. It is one of the issues currently trending.
