Singer Omawumi stormed off the set of HFtv Da Chat show after she was asked to address rumors about her smoking and drinking habit. A visibly angry Omawumi told the presenter, Zinnia;
“I will not honour you with a response.
I feel like that is a taint to my character. Have you seen me smoking before?” When the presenter said no, Omawumi said “So why would you say that? You see me as an artist, I am contributing what I can. I make music the way that I should and I come here and honour your invitation and then you sit down and talk about my smoking & drinking to people that are listening. And you’re supposed to mean me well when these people are supposed to be the ones that are buying my music. Now, when you say that sort of thing, do you mean me well? You can’t ask me to kill a rumour that you are not sure about…as a rumour, you need to go and dig and get your facts right before you ask somebody something …and that is the end of this interview” she then stormed out.
