Caroline Sam known as Maheeda in the entertainment industry may be the bad girl most parents wouldn’t want within a yard of their wards, but the former prostitute turned musician has an ace up her sleeve.
In a riveting interview with Potpourri in the year, the pretty mother of one gave reasons why she is using sex and nudity to sell her music, first gospel, before really going secular.
According to her, she is treading the path most Nigerian entertainers wouldn’t dare because of their inhibitions.
“I had this vision of what’s happening right now. Like I’m very bad, like I’m the baddest girl in Nigeria which is not true. So, my vision is actually to see my posters in people’s bedrooms and stuff like that. I want to be that sex symbol one can fantasize about” she boasted.
Giving her reason for wanting her nude and sex posters to adorn people’s bedroom, the Lasgidi Chick and Naija Bad Girl crooner explained it is a sort of brand she is trying to build.
“Because it works abroad, it could work here too. I had my challenges. They are still there but there’s no stopping me because I know that for anything new you have to fight for it. I am leveraging on being a sex symbol because sex sells. I want to make money and also, I want to make my name. It’s the only space in the Nigerian music industry that is just there, everybody is scared to tread on such a path, so I’m daring it” she said.
