They Asked Me To Strip As Part Of The Audition Process ––Female Singer


“I have faced a lot in the music industry just to make a name for myself; I thank God that it is finally paying off. It is my dream; I have a passion for it so I endured. I have been to a place where they asked me to take off my dress to see how my skin really looks. It was some sort of interview or process I had to go through before I could perform on stage for a gig. I have been bullied, ignored; starting wasn’t easy.



“I am used to it. I just shot my video for my song, ‘Mo fi di lu’, the video will be coming out soon. Now, anything people do, I just smile and let it go because I have seen it all.”


The name Helenite may not ring a bell yet, but the songstress may rise fast in the music industry. What makes her unique is her husky voice. Although a beautiful lady, her voice can be mistaken for a man’s.

However, she said her husky voice suits her and her music well. She added:


“I do afro-pop music and RnB. I know I have a husky voice and it works very well for my music. It makes me different and unique. My unique husky voice is an advantage to me. Being a female musician does not mean that your voice has to be thin or faint. My voice is deep and my fans love it this way. On numerous occasions, I am mistaken for a man on the phone because of my voice.

“Sometime I could be with my female friends, when they receive their boyfriends’ calls and I talk in the background, they sometimes think they are with men till I talk to their boyfriends to clear the doubt in their mind. Funny thing is that when someone talks to me on the phone and see me in real life, they are shocked because of how beautiful I am.
