Affirming her zero tolerance for unflattering situations with journalists, singer Omawumi Megbele, during a recent TV interview lost her temper and walked out on the presenter.

She was a guest on “Da Chat” with Zinnia, a show produced by HF TV; and all was going fairly well as they had discussed other issues concerning motherhood, love life and her career - but the chat took an extreme turn after she was asked about her alleged smoking and drinking habit.

Omawumi, who apparently believed the presenter directly accused her of smoking and drinking, asked repeatedly; "have you seen me smoking before?"

Amid visible anger and heightened tone, the singer maintained that the presenter does not wish her well for bringing up such object in an interview destined for the internet, where its capable of damaging her image before fans and minders.

"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," Omawumi said as she walked out of set.
