I was supposed to be YBNL Princess, but Olamide signed Temmie Ovwasa – Rapper, Candy Bleakz

Nigerian female emcee, Candy Bleakz claims she was supposed to have been signed in the place of singer Temmie Ovwasa at YBNL Nation.

She revealed that she was shocked when Olamide unveiled Temmie because she (Candy) was on the brink of becoming the YBNL Princess in 2015.

The rapper made this disclosure when she featured in a recent episode of the Hip TV programme, Trending hosted by Big Brother Naija star KimOprah.

Temmie exited Olamide’s record label years ago, and she alleged exploitation among other issues as her reason for leaving.

Candy Bleakz said she and Temmie Ovwasa were close friends, so she was sad when Baddo announced that he’s given her a record deal, because she expected they would sign her instead.

The rapper said; “The day Baddo (Olamide) unveiled Temmie Ovwasa, she is my friend but I was really sad. I was supposed to be the YBNL Princess. I was like, ‘Why did they sign someone else?’”

Also speaking on the struggles of being a female artist in Nigeria, Candy said; “For a female artist, when you’re pretty it’s a problem, when you’re ugly it’s a problem.

When you’re too sexy it’s an issue and when you are not it’s an issue. Because I’m bringing something to the table but you will see comments like, ‘She’s not fine. She’s not dressing sexy. And at the same time, when she is fine they would want her to bring something to the table”.

Meanwhile, in another news…

CorrectNG reported earlier that Temmie recounted her ordeal in the hands of erstwhile record label boss, Olamide Adedeji and his wife, Aisha Adebukunmi.

The controversial singer alleged that Olamide’s wife turned her to an errand girl while she was signed to his record label. Temmie alleged that Adebukunmi humiliated her in public each time they went out together, and called her “poor.”

She also accused former YBNL in-house producer turned artiste, Pheelz of carelessly misplacing a drive that contained her unreleased album.

Ovwasa wrote partly; “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.”
