Prominent Nigerian music promoter Bayowa has taken a strong stance to defend his reputation against allegations made by his former protege, Busola Oke.
Bayowa expressed surprise that, after a decade since her departure from his company, Busola Oke has chosen this moment to voice her grievances. He suggested that she might be seeking attention by linking her story with the unfortunate death of Mohbad.
Bayowa vehemently stated that he nurtured Busola’s career without any romantic involvement, taking her from humble beginnings to success. He highlighted that she collaborated with various industry individuals after parting ways with him.
Bayowa also mentioned that during her 2019 UK tour, Busola was romantically involved with a married London-based promoter, causing turmoil in his marital life. While not providing specific details, Bayowa argued that Busola is responsible for her own troubles and urged her to regain her footing in the music industry.
Excerpt from his statement read:
“With God on my side, I brought BUSOLA OKE ELEYELE UP from nobody to somebody without dating or seeing her nakedness. From Grass to Grace. TO GOD BE THE GLORY. She left my promotion and marketing company about ten or eleven years ago after buying her another car, and I never bothered or chased after her to come back.
She has produced about 3 albums for other marketers, She produced about 5 albums marketed by herself within the period she left Bayowa Films. So why crying and calling for my head now after about ten years that I saw her last?”
