Nigerian singer-songwriter and actress, Omawumi Megbele, popularly known by her stage name Omawumi, recently stormed out of an interview on Da Chat produced by HF TV.
The award winning singer from Itsekiri Delta State, was disappointed and lost her cool when asked about her smoking and drinking habit.
The host, Zinna of HF TV asked her: “There has been a controversy about you in the industry, I don’t think you know about it.
“People say she is a mother and it’s amazing because young girls want to be like her but she has this smoking and drinking habit, how does she keep that away from her kids?”
Omawumi, who could not hide her frustration immediately flared up, as she manifested her anger on air while the interview was ongoing.
In her response she said: “I won’t honour you with a response, I feel that it is a taint to my character. Have you seen me smoke before?” she asked the presenter who said she had not.
“Then why would you say that, have you seen me smoke before?
“Now you see me as an artiste, I contribute what I can; I produce 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 buying my music; now when you say that sort of thing, do you mean me well?
“You cannot ask me to kill a rumour that you are not sure about, you have said it’s a rumour so you need to go and dig and get your facts right before you ask me.
“I maintain that if you have not seen me smoke and you come out and say it on national tv, it means that you don’t mean me well and that is the end of this interview.”
While walking away, she added: “And you will publish it o.”
