Like they say, you can take a pig out of the 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 such honour.
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 matter.
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 any.
