"When it's about Fire Baby, everyone wants to exaggerate. No one takes a good photo and uses it in the news when it's for Fire Baby. They have to make it look bad. But I'm used. I'm used now. I have a personal photographer who takes my pictures and I post them on my page [social media]," Nwagi said while speaking to Spark TV.
Winnie Nwagi: Photo showing ‘dripping’ makeup was edited to embarrass me
Songstress Winnie Nakanwagi, better known as Winnie Nwagi, said that the picture showing dripping makeup that was taken during The Big Show was tweaked to embarrass her.
"So, if anyone wants to see me, find the right pictures on my page. Ignore photos shared by bloggers, because they have different intentions. I saw the photos, makeup is dripping, but it wasn't to the level they made it look. They over-edited the photo... they have to give you what to talk about."
The Big Show was held on Friday, November 11, 2022, at Lugogo Cricket Oval and Nwagi was among the curtain-raisers for Jamaican dancehall singer Beenie Man.
Some of the other acts were Vinka, Azawi, Grenade, and Zex Bilangilangi.
Nigerian crooner Oxlade Official and South African entertainers Focalistic, Mellow, and Sleazy had been announced among the performers but they didn't perform due to contractual disagreements with Top Boy Entertainment Records, the events company that organised the concert.
Meanwhile, Nwagi reiterated that she won't be leaving Swangz Avenue, the record label that manages her music.
"I want you to bury that news. Get a spade, dig a grave, and bury it. There is no such thing. I'm still at Swangz Avenue. We have no issues. It's people that want to create issues, but there are no issues. We are still working, and we have a lot of plans ahead of us," she said.
Rumours of Nwagi's plans to leave Swangz Avenue gained steam after some observers argued that the label was no longer prioritising her, citing Azawi's show being held before hers, the label organising Juliana Kanyomozi's concert before hers yet it doesn't manage her and using KT Events to promote her concert, which was held on September 9.
But all these rumours have been addressed.
