Singer Aramide Narrates Incident That Made Her Lose Respect For Veteran Artiste Onyenka Onwenu

In an interview with The Net Ng, the Nigerian alternative singer talks about how she lost respect for one of her biggest childhood inspirations, Singer Onyenka Onwenu; 





"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," she added



*Awwwwww,she was probably under stress.I think Onyeka is a nice person.

Fame can be stressful.. so many people trying to get at you all at the same time. It's not easy sometimes for them

Sally jayd said...

She should go and sit down. Onyeka is not her mates. Somethings are better left unsaid. Onyeka might be having a bad day or her approach towards Onyeka wasn’t nice.

Your head dey there jare. Very embarrassing situation. Haba!

Doesn't justify the fact that Onyeka's response was embarrasing

lynn Davies said...

Nigerians have started, what has age or seniority got to do with this now, she disrespected her peril!! Onyeka is a veteran in the game so she should know better. And at the time where Aramide is talking about, she a veteran in the game, so she should know better.

I know onyeka very well. She is the most terrible Nigerian artist i have met. She does not behave her age and is a bad role model for any upcoming artist! Always bitter and feels entitled! Always ready to fight both old and young alike

SUGAR. said...

Just like than Katehenshaw,funke Bello and her fan video.

I dunno what it was all about but Kate's response was so rude and arrrghhhh bad!

Dammit mehm!

If I adore you, I don't want to see the bad side. Keep it to yaself.

Oh my goodness you sound so juvenile! All these so called nigerian celebrities. You should see how humble they are when they come to the United States.

Nigeria is becoming really, really tough. In just 2017, I lost my first child due to medical neglect, my husband could not secure a single job order, I haven't been able to collect my results in school due to strike, I dealt with about two medical challenges, I battle depression due to the loss of my child and delay in conception, my job is no longer fulfilling as there is no chance for growth nor significant salary increase even as a graduate, I am surrounded by comfortable people who have not considered to help me even when I request, we have considered to relocate out of Nigeria through study but no enough money, we have also considered getting a foreign job to ease our relocation plans yet nothing is forthcoming. I am not writing this to attract pity but to kindly request you put my family in prayers. I still count God faithful in all circumstances and I trust Him to bring my expectations to pass.

Olivia Silk said...

Before you approach someone who doesn't know You in a bid to take a paicturd, you need to ask ,Hello ma'am Can we take a picture please"?. It's simple manners.
Imagine if someone I don't know just came close to me, touching me trying to take a pic? Amma push you off honey. Don't touch me.
Ask! Hian.

Biko make una leave my Onyeka for me.

Benny Amadi said...

I have met Onyeka Onwenu and I think she's a very nice woman.
She came to my workplace after we had closed for the day and asked to see the manager because the security guys would not allow her in. She was allowed to come in and we treated her like royalty infact everyone came to say hello to her. When she was about leaving, she asked if we wanted to take pictures and we did, I still have the pictures on my phone.
One thing I noticed was that she didn't allow the guys touch her while we took the pictures, she would jokingly say 'wepu aka gi biko'('remove your hand please' in Igbo language) and we all laughed over it but for all the ladies, she was the one that put her hand over our shoulders sef.
So I guess she may have been in a bad mood the day Aramide met her.

This one that they will soon teach lesson. You no know your mate abi.

Na so Mercy Johnson come movie location for Asaba wan rub shoulder with Patience Ozokwor.

Make you go ask Mercy how may minutes she kneel down before dem forgive am, many women begged Mama G to forgive Mercy.

Una no dey fear. Onyeka Onwenu snubbed you. Do face like rat

pipa game said...

@sally jay .don't talk like that now, haba onyeka is not her mate but can she treat her like a daughter. people look up to her. i for one i love and respect her.if what this lady said is true that is really bad . if she were to be a president daughter that came to her will she say don't touch me.

MissAmusa said...

Which stress? Onyeka is rude in real life abeg. She has this DIVA behaviour to wa very annoying. I've seen her before acting as if every other person at the event was beneath her.
How can you go to an Event if your having a bad day or you're stressed?
Bubble Gum you're right, they humble themselves in the abroad. Maybe Nigerians in the abroad are different from we Nigerians in the Nigeria.

Firstlady blessing said...

Heard most of these celebs are rude.A celeb should always represent

deenity Sealord said...

Queen boss, hmm u too will soon enter menopause o, menopause is no sin haba

Cynthia Iyede said...

It is well.

Chika Vincent said...

I know say nah your comment go dey different Alika leg ooo lolz. Abegi no matter what stress she passing through she could has not talk to her that why, why didn't she just rest at home...

Cynthia Iyede said...

What Onyenka did isn't cool but we also don't really know if this lady approached her the right way. That she's the one narrating the story doesn't make her right.

Most precious stone said...

Take heart concerning your child, hold on to God, people hardly help these days, trust in God He will perfect all at his time, maybe start looking for work in nija maybe God wants your breakthrough to be from here

Chyluv! said...

Could she have been having a bad day? A lot of people have given similar account though. She's still a legend.

Olivia Silk said...

Lol @they humble themselves in the abroad.

You clearly haven't met a "diva"
Hollywood celebs are the worst honey. They even do same to their fellow celebs. Don't say what you don't know mbok.

Olivia Silk said...

Exactly.

If I were you @ARAMIDE ,I wouldn't have granted this interview or better still, I would have, but I wouldn't have said anything bad about @Onyeka.. But what do you know after all? You are a YORUBA DEMON... you take pleasure in being "noticed "

You yourself, @Aramide, you are one RUDE fellow as well... Your song no even sweet sef.. You go dey shout untop your voice like person wen shit dey catch

O yes... If you walk up to someone without the persons permission and you bring out your "palasa " phone to take selfie.. That is rude.. I am sure that is what she did.


You have to notify someone before taking pics with that person, because you don't know what mood the person was at the time you approached the person with your palasa phone



That will not make me buy your CD @Aramide

My friend had an encounter with her and she was very arrogant and rude and this is not yoruba o it was in Rivers state ...my friend gave it to her..when different people say same thing about you then check am well

Eminado Onimisi said...

If it is about age, then the older person should behave better, more warming and accommodating. If you are stressed up, try and comport yourself in public, especially if you are a celebrity. By the way, before Aramide's interview I have always heard that Onyeka is rude.

BLOGLORD (MVBM) said...

I guess she was having a bad day and reacted without a second thought.

I've met Onyeka Onwenu on one or two occasions. She was very warm and friendly. Still have some pics I took with her.

Celebrity or not, we are all humans. Everyday is not a good day. Though how we handle the stress and its effect on our attitude to others matters.

Honestly speaking, i really admire those of you who approach these people and ask to take pictures, i can never do such, it is soooo beneath me. It is such a demeaning thing to do to yourself. I only want to take a picture with God(if that is possible)

Yes Kate is, she actually turned someone down in an event from taking pictures with her.

All those saying Onyeka isn't her mate is laughable. What has age got to do with it? What Onyeka did was very wrong! Nigerians havea way of focusing on the person and not the problem. Onyeka's act was totally condemnable period! Whether you are an ancestor,i don't freaking care! When you do something wrong, I will tell you to your face.
Onyeka is as rude as hell! That lady is terrible!If you guys like rant and insult Aramide from now till tomorrow it still doesn't change the fact that she is like that.

Stella, have you met her in person? If no, please keep your thoughts to yourself biko!
People who have met her don't say nice things about her.

Asabe said...

Onyeka is RUDE,Am talking from experience. I went to say Hello once and I she look me up and down like get out. Sharp girl I just look her say "ooh sorry I thot you were my madam cos you look like her,anyway bye biyucch" if she answer I for use mouth finish her.After that incident I heard she is like that.i don't respect her at all Shegiya.

Onyeka is plain and downright rude.Ask anybody that works in Women Centre Abuja where she was the DG.It was terrible.Nobody could walk past her corridors, you had to go all the way round the other way.She would embarrass her staff by saying the person has body odour, in front of people.Onyeka's story MD Human relations? No no no

Tina Andersson said...

@Bloglord Onyeka is not warm at allll. A cousin of mine once worked with her as a secretary. She had her office somewhere in GRA Ikeja. I've met on several occasions. I dont want say more but my experience about her was not a good One. Anyway that was in those strugling years. I love her music though!!

I AM BACK said...
