Yemi Alade: I don’t win awards because I reject sexual advances

Popular Nigerian singer, Yemi Alade says despite her obvious success and fame, she rarely wins awards in Nigeria because of her refusal to heed to the requests of organisers for sex.


The ‘Johnny’ crooner disclosed that a lot of entertainment executives have requested sex from her in the past, with the promises of giving her better opportunities in the industry but she turned down such offers.

However, she said she has no regrets turning down their offers because she has her dignity intact in the industry.

“There was a time in the industry when everyone wanted to sleep with me and it was like, ‘Yemi, if you don’t do this, you won’t have that. Today men are the reason I don’t win awards in Nigeria,” Nigerian blog, WithInNigeria quoted her as saying.

“Going down with men was like a bridge I had to cross to get on some platforms, get some deals and even awards. When I made my decision never to engage in sexual activities for gains, lots of opportunities were automatically blocked for me.”
