Speaking with Sunday Scoop, the singer denied that and said he is largely misunderstood. “I am someone who calls a spade a spade. I say it as I see it, and I don’t like to sugarcoat things. I believe in being real and I don’t have time for industry politics. There is a lot of fakeness in the industry; people say one thing, yet they mean another. For me, I wouldn’t say anything behind your back. I would say whatever I want to say right to your face, and that’s the end. I believe in expressing myself immediately and after that, it’s over; I move on. But in this industry, if you speak the truth, you begin to look like the odd one out and that’s not cool. That’s why I don’t have lots of friends in the industry because I like to keep to myself.”

I Don't Date Boys, I Date Men, Real Men, Adekemi Taofeek

Me I like this chic o, lol. Nollywood actress, Adekemi Taofeek has said unplanned babies falling on ladies a.k.a babaymamas, can never happen to her.

On babymamas; “I really can’t talk much on this but what I know is that it doesn’t apply only to Nollywood, it happens everywhere.

I will credit my stay in the industry to God because He is the one that gives me the strength to carry on. At times when it seems things are not working right, I just smile and move on because I know God is in control. I am also spurred on by the fact that there is still so much I want to achieve and I’m not a quitter. I am surrounded by great people who always encourage and motivate me to be the best version of myself. The most important thing is that I am happy doing what I truly love and I don’t take that for granted because not everybody gets that chance.”
