“My Career Was Robbed’- Funke Olayode ‘African Celine Dion’ Speaks

Published

on

Funke Olayode,  dubbed ‘African Celine Dion’, who some days ago, crept back into the limelight; after an uploaded  lengthy, wordy post on Facebook, in which she slammed Richard Mofe-Damijo and Teju Kareem, had a recent chat with Sunday Scoop and made more revelations about how her career was robbed and how everyone is corrupt except her.

Olayode said, “I am not really interested in talking about it because what am I selling? It has been 19 years now. Why do I have to talk now? I cannot blame you for wanting to find out because there are people out there who want to know what I’ve been up to. However, I am not interested. It has been a journey. There was a robbery attack on my career; it is as simple as that. I live in Ogbomoso (Oyo State) now. That is my home town and I live each day as it comes; I am engaged in petty trading. As of now, I am not ‘cooking’ any music. I was the one who made the post on Facebook; it is not a fake account. I put it on my Facebook page that anybody who wants to interact with me should pay some money into my account. You may be wondering why I am talking to you though you did not pay any money. I guess it’s because I’m in a good mood at the moment.”

On whether she has quit music totally, Olayode said, “I came to this life to do music; there’s no way I can drop it. Like I said earlier, there was a robbery attack on my career. There are people who have been blocking my way. I don’t have any power of my own to do anything (to them). No one knows tomorrow (so I may still make music). Anything can happen.”

Asked to name the people who masterminded the robbery on her career, she said, “Has it not been confirmed? It is everywhere. It has been said that every Nigerian is a criminal, except me. I am 44-year-old; so, I have seen a lot.”

Prodded to share her experiences to help younger ones from making the same mistakes she did, Olayode said, “If it is about the younger ones, please I am not interested. I don’t wish anybody well in life. Nobody wished me well or made me happy in life, so what’s my business with the younger ones? Anybody who needs advice in the industry should go to the people who are up there so they can show them how they got there. They don’t need me. I am not the definition of success; so nobody needs to ask me for advice on coming up in the industry. I don’t care about anyone in life.”

Biafra: Nnamdi Kanu Explodes Over #LekkiMassacre Of #EndSARS Protesters

The leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, has condemned the attack on peaceful #EndSARS protesters at Lekki toll gate in Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial city.

It was reported earlier that soldiers of the Nigerian Army invaded a peaceful protest at Lekki toll gate on Tuesday evening.

Reacting to the attack on the peaceful protesters in Lagos in a tweet, Kanu, a director of Radio Biafra, said it is “shocking that Southern Nigerians are tolerating a Northern Muslim” President Muhammadu Buhari “using the Army to kill unarmed Southern #EndSARS protesters in Lagos” on a “Southern soil”.

The apparently furious IPOB leader wondered if “Southern Christian President” would ever “contemplate killing unarmed Northern Muslim protesters in Kano”, northern Nigeria.

Kanu tweeted: It’s shocking that Southern Nigerians are tolerating a Northern Muslim @NGRPresident using the Army to KILL unarmed Southern #EndSARS protesters in Lagos, a Southern soil? Would a Southern Christian President ever contemplate killing unarmed Northern Muslim protesters in KANO?”
