Nigerian female singer and songwriter, Aramide Sarumoh, better known as Aramide Revealed she no longer respects Onyeka Onwenu after the legendary singer shunned her at an event.
Speaking with the folks at NET, the ‘Jowo‘ singer narrated how she opened for Onyeka Onwenu at a recent event and afterwards, she was called to take a photo with the legend but Onwenu shunned her.
“As I got close to her, she just went off on me–she was like, ‘don’t touch me’. It was crazy, and it’s still like the worst experience I’ve ever had in my life,” Aramide said. “Everyone was staring. It was weird.”

“But I still took the picture but it scarred me, because…when I see someone I look up to, I want to be in front of you and say, ‘see, I love you‘,” said Aramide. “But when I get that opportunity and I’m shunned, it makes me feel really bad.”
She continued, saying, “I don’t think I will see her now and want to say hello. It is what it is.”
This revelation has stirred heated debate on social media; while many people stand with Aramide, others noted that the younger singer is making a fuss out of simple things; Onyeka Onwenu apparently is one of those who dislike being touched unnecessarily.
“What’s the big deal? She doesn’t want u to touch her. Why make a fuss over this publicly,” said on Instagrammer, and another added, “I am not understanding ? me I don’t even like strangers touching me.”
