…..I thought it was a scam until I confirmed that it was indeed Olamide’s official Instagram account. I sent my number and we began talking. From the moment Olamide sent me a direct message, I knew something was going to happen.
In April 2016, YBNL leader, Olamide signed the first ever female act to his label.
The signing came barely a week after his protege, Lil Kesh publicly parted ways with YBNL to set up his own YAGI Records.
With the signing, Temmie Ovwasa fondly called YBNL Princess began her journey to stardom.
In a recent 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’.
She continued to say, ‘a few minutes later he sent me a direct message requesting for my phone number. At first, I thought it was a scam until I confirmed that it was indeed Olamide’s official Instagram account. I sent my number and we began talking. From the moment Olamide sent me a direct message, I knew something was going to happen; I am very intuitive. Getting signed on with YBNL Records is a blessing that gave me my big break’.
Asked if she’s in a relationship, Temmie says, ‘am in a relationship with my guitar for now because it is supportive of my career and an indelible part of it.
My dream man must be supportive of my music career and mature enough not to be threatened by my fame. He must also not see me as a competition and he must be grounded in God. I may date a musician if we both share similar values’.
