Did You Hear The Gist About Salawa Abeni’s Nude Photos?

April 9, 2020

You’ll be sitting on your own and someone will carry trouble to come and meet you. That’s the perfect example of what happened with the man who threatened to blackmail Salawa Abeni with her nude photos.

Queen Salawa Abeni

A quick one for people who don’t know Salawa Abeni. She is a singer, known majorly for her waka music, an Islamic-oriented Yoruba musical genre. Her 1976 debut album, Late General Murtala Ramat Muhammed sold a million copies, the first recording by a female artiste in Yoruba to ever achieve that. In 1992, she was crowned the Queen of Waka Music by the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi.

According to her, the blackmailer, a man named Jason from Osun state, messaged her to say that he had her nudes and was planning to release it. Here are screenshots:

LMAO he even gave countdown.

Instead of giving in to his demands, Salawa Abeni went ahead to release the ‘nude’ photos herself. Ladies and gentlemen of Buhari’s internet, here’s the nude photo oh.

Is this what someone called a nude photo? *sigh*

Anyway, here’s Salawa Abeni’s response:

A queen!

When interviewed about her decision to release the nudes before the blackmailer did, here’s what she said:

“Firstly, I am not a child. I cannot even recall where that photo was taken. I’m not sure whether I was even in the hospital or with my partner. It must have been taken more than 20 years ago. I’ll be 60 next year and I have spent 46 years on stage, so for anyone to decide to blackmail me in this critical time when the world is on lockdown, battling the Coronavirus pandemic; that is bad. So, since the person threatened to release the photo, I decided to ‘help’ him by posting the photo online myself.

“Is nudity that sacred? I gave birth four times and I exposed my nakedness to the doctors and nurses at those times. There was nothing for me to be scared of. I have God and people behind me.”

Sorry to the blackmailer. He jammed bad market. And if there is anyone who is planning to blackmail people at this time, well, Queen Salawa Abeni’s action has shown us what to do with blackmailers.

Energy!
