Ghanaian songstress, Feli Nuna, has said that even though she has had a lot of record labels interested in investing in her music, they all want to sleep with her first.
“I’ve had a lot of offers from people who want to invest in my craft but they all say: ‘Your waist is nice’, or ‘you are a nice girl’, and at the end, sometimes they might not start from the beginning but it always gets there and I always complain,” she lamented.
Speaking to Prince Benjamin on the Class Drive on Class 91.3FM, the “Love Me Now” hit maker stated that she was looking out for a someone who believes in her craft and not her waist.
“I want an executive producer who does not want to sleep with me but who wants to bring me money and work with me,” she stated.
Feli Nuna also pointed out that “all the male artistes you see, big men and influential people support them, so, does it mean that they also sleep with them? You are investing to get your money back; that is the same way you should approach it with a female artiste as well.”
Feli Nuna also urged rich female entrepreneurs to invest in female artistes because the music business is lucrative.
“I’ve been facing this [challenge] from the outset of my career. I urge women who are financially sound to invest as well, they should also invest in other female artistes as well. Trust me, the music business is booming, you can make a lot of money from the music business if you take it seriously. More record labels focus on the show not the business,” she advised.
