Men want to get into my pants before giving me jobs – Singer Whykay laments

OGUNJIMI Adeyinka, better known as Whykay, is a woman of many parts who keeps reinventing her brand.

The graduate of management and computer science from Wisconsin International University, who is more known as a rapper and actress, has stated why she opted to become a music producer.

In a recent encounter with NaijaTimes, the curvy actress said, “This is interesting. The very first reason I even considered music production was because I got so busy with other parts of my career I was beginning to lose touch. So I decided to have my studio as a form of motivation. I also thought being a music producer;producing others and myself won’t be a bad idea. I’m already making free background music for content creators by the way”.

The popular social media influencer, going down memory lane, said she wasn’t ready when approached by record labels  because she had to complete her education.

“I started getting record label deals from my days in school. I wasn’t ready because I knew it would have distracted me and I  probably would have dropped out. Good thing is I loved school and the fear of my parents stopped me. My father is a chartered account,why will I be half educated ? I know where I’m coming from,I don’t have that confidence. After my University education, I started doing a lot and I’m not sure I want to be restricted except it’s a life changing deal”.

Whykay also shed light on some of the challenges she encountered as a female artiste: “One of the challenges I faced was the fact that some people want to get in your pants before giving you jobs, all categories. Also the fact that one is a woman. This makes some people don’t even want to give you audience in the first place till you’re able to convince them”.
