Singer Omawumi beats up Journalist
dirt, but you can't take the dirt out of the pig.
It is also true that a child destined to sleep on
the floor, even if he's put on a waterbed, will
always show the trait that he's not meant for
Maybe such can be used to describe a female
singer, who was only fortunate to taste
glamour, but believes she would always remain
her real self, a ghetto girl. Or, how would you
describe a lady, who grew up like a normal
village girl, but only enjoyed a life of a celeb
because luck smiled at her, but now, she is
forgetting how she worked, suffered to climb
to the top. Maybe she has forgotten that a
river that forgets its source will surely dry up.
Like they say, absolute power corrupts a man,
but this time, a woman too.
Enough of all these digressions and now to the
crux of the matter.
According to information available to us,
Omowumi has allegedly shown again why she
might not be a good role model to young girls.
Recall that she had a child out of wedlock,
which made some parents to advise their
wards, who were earlier looking up to her, not
to copy her at all because getting a child out
of wedlock is against a typical Nigerian
culture. Now, the Warri-born singer-cum-
actress has been alleged of attacking a photo-
journalist at an event held in Lagos recently.
While carrying out his lawful duty, the photo-
journalist, Adekola Bamigbala attempted to
take pictures of Omawumi, but little did he
know that danger was lurking around for him,
as the singer allegedly pounced on him,
snatched his big camera and with it, dealt him
heavy strikes in the face in quick succession,
which gave Bamigbala a swollen face. It was big
and strange flashes, not from his camera, but
from alleged assaults from Omawumi that the
journalist could see.
Nigeriafilms.com called Omawumi, but a lady,
who claimed not to be her, refused to speak
with us when we explained why we called. But
the voice Nigeriafilms.com heard sounded like
Omawumi, which made us to believe probably
the singer is not willing to speak with us on the
Nigeriafilms.com immediately sent an SMS to
her (Thursday), which has not yet been replied
to four days after.
However, Nigeriafilms.com called the victim,
who explained the incident to us. Bamigbala
wondered why Omawumi would descend so low
to attack him.
When asked if they have had issues before
that day, Bamigbala said he can't remember
