Artist Emma Chukwugoziam Obi a.k.a Emma Nyra in a chat with Vanguard talks about how she feels for getting rude and inappropriate messages from people, can't say fans,, Hamm, but why the criticism naa...
As someone in the public glare what is the craziest thing a fan has ever done to you?
Everyday I get Facebook messages that are out of this world. If I put them out people will be like Emma is wicked. I get a lot of inappropriate messages. Even this morning I got an inappropriate message on Instagram, I can’t even tell you what the person said.
I don’t mind reading inappropriate messages but the one that makes me sad is when you read a blog and
somebody doesn’t respect the music that you do or have bad opinions about you which comes everyday as well. You take the good with the bad, everybody is entitled to their own opinion.
What defines your sense of style?
I like to be sexy and classy. I work really hard on my body and anytime I am doing anything fashionable I like to show a little bit of skin. I worked hard for it and its my selling point.
I am not afraid to show my body, you know you do it in a classy way. There will be classy ways to be sexy, so you don’t have to show everything.
How do you handle stardom?
The only part that is affecting me is dating. Dating is very difficult. Everything else I like it. The worst part is dating.
Sometimes, guys come up to me, Oh yeah Emma Nyra’ and that’s how it starts.
It is not as genuine as it used to be. Since I am a woman, it affects me in a way. Sometimes, you see people coming to you, not because of who you are. It puts me off sometimes if you come to me because you’ve seen me on a blog.
I miss the days when a guy will walk up to you and just tell you I love the way you carry yourself, not necessarily because of a particular image they see.
So are you in a relationship?
No, I am not in a relationship. Music is my everything. It’s not that I am not interested, but right now, I am not dating any one.
