Temmie Ovwasa, formerly of YBNL and known as YBNL Princess, has accused her ex-boss Olamide and his wife Aisha Adebukunmi of abusing her.
She posted a series of tweets on her Instagram stories criticizing the record label, the YBNL CEO, and his wife.
She uploaded a photo of the cover art for the joint YBNL Mafia album, labeling Olamide as misogynistic, pointing out how her image was minimized in compared to the male members of the group. Temmie added that despite her complaints before to the album’s release, nothing was done.
The singer further stated that after he removed her from her residence in Ilorin, his wife neglected her musical talent and used her as an errand girl in their home. She testified that throughout the course of her five years as a label member, Olamide’s wife repeatedly mistreated and degraded her.
She continued with her in-depth confessional after that, expressing her regret at having nothing to show for her five years working for the label. The performer disclosed that a hard drive holding 25 of her unpublished songs was supposedly lost by in-house producer Pheelz.
YBNL Princess, who joined the group in 2015 and departed in 2020, added that she was afraid of “being murdered” and that there were many things she was unable to speak about the label and its ties.
