In April this year, Olamide signed the first female artiste to his record label and called her YBNL Princess. Born as Temmie Ovwasa, YBNL Princess reveals how she got signed to the record label of the Nigerian superstar.
Olamide signed Miss Owvasa barely a week after Lil Kesh publicly parted ways with YBNL to set up his own YAGI Records. Miss Ovwasa ross to fame shortly after the label’s CEO unveiled her as their Princess. In a recent interview with Punch, the Delta State-born singer narrated how she was contacted by Olamide on social media.
According to her, she had never been a fan of tagging celebrities to see her works. She usually posts videos on Instagram of herself singing alongside her guitar. Fortunately, the Shakiti Bobo crooner liked all her videos and requested for her number in a direct message.
“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.”
“I’m in a relationship with my guitar for now because it is supportive of my career and an indelible part of it, she said when asked if she’s in a relationship. 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,” she said.
So far, Temmie’s debut single, Jabole has been gaining fair airplay and ears are itching to hear more from her now that the fire is still hot.
