There has been a lot of reactions since the video of Omawumi angrily storming out of an interview came online, read why here. I personally think there wasn’t really a need for all the drama that Omawumi gave. She could have easily just shot the rumors down there with a simple NO, if she doesn’t drink and smoke. Infact it was very obvious she drinks, as she didn’t focus on that aspect and kept on asking Zinnia if she has ever seen her smoke before. Frankly she overreacted.
As usual Nigerian Twitter decided to ‘weigh into’ the matter, while we await the professional ‘weighers’ eg Freeze and Charles Novia lol. Some supported what Omawumi did, while some like me, felt she overreacted.
See their tweets below
Lol. Just seen the interview. Omawumi overreacted and did not take the question as asked.

How dare you? A singer who's married with 2 kids, who's clearly moved beyond rumours however unfounded. Omawumi exercised extreme patience.

The truth if the matter.
The interviewer didn't frame the question well but Omawumi overreacted.

All those "rumours" were created by the presenter and her colleagues. No one even knew Omawumi's husband's full name until TJ said it.

The stupidity started showing from the show's introduction. Then when she asked if Omawumi was married to Frabz pic.twitter.com/6zHo5QxuYQ

Lobatan😅😅😅"@segebee: I bet the interviewer was warming up to ask Omawumi… "Is it true you cook for teebillz. Are you edible catering""

The funniest thing about the interview is: I've never heard anyone say Omawumi smokes or drinks. I was hearing that for the first time.
