“How Bayowa Music seized my earnings and made me broke because I refused to sleep with him” — Gospel singer Busola Oke
Busola Oke, a renowned Nigerian gospel singer, has alleged that Gbenga Adewusi, a veteran music marketer and promoter known as Bayowa Films, withheld her music earnings as a result of her refusal to enter into a romantic relationship with him.
She brought this shocking revelation to light during a live session on TikTok, which was prompted by her response to the unfortunate passing of 27-year-old singer Mohbad. Mohbad had faced harassment and bullying from individuals connected to his former record label, Marlian Music.
“Don’t rest in peace until you avenge your death,” she told the deceased.
Speaking about her own experience, Busola accused her former management, Bayowa Music, of withholding her money and leaving her in financial hardship because she rejected his advances.
She stated that she was forced to sell her assets and endure financial losses from which she has yet to recover after the incident with Bayowa, who, she believes, will face the consequences of his actions.
According to her, she could have achieved substantial wealth and recognition if not for Bayowa’s greed.
The ‘Eleyele’ crooner who spoke in Yoruba said,
“Bayowa has my earnings; he is enjoying life with it. He is using my sweat to enjoy life. He is profiting from my hard work. Only God will judge you, Bayowa. You’re wicked and heartless. The only thing I didn’t lose is that we didn’t have a physical relationship or sleep together. I refused to allow you to take advantage of my body the way you exploited my intellectual property. I’m glad I’m not like that.”
