Veteran Singer, Onyeka Onwenu made me lose respect for her – Aramide

Nigerian singer, Aramide, has in a recent interview revealed that she lost respect for veteran singer, Onyeka Onwenu some years ago after she was ill treated by the veteran.

The alternative singer who recently released a fresh single titled ‘Jomo’ revealed this while speaking during an interview with NET.

Recounting the incident which led to her decision, Aramide noted that her childhood inspiration, Onyeka Onwenu, denied her the pleasure of courtesy and a photo.

She said: “I was still really new in the industry and I opened the stage for her, I got down and decided to take a picture with her, as soon as I got there she went off on me. She said ‘Don’t touch me’. It was like the worst experience I have had in my life. Everyone was staring at me. I don’t think she knew I opened the show for her’.

“I even knelt down to greet her, and she said okay come and take the picture. For a moment, I felt bad, but the good thing about that kind of situation is that it makes you work really hard… I lost my respect for her after that event, I don’t think I would see her and say hello. But It was a long time ago. It is what it is now, I have moved on.”
