Burnigton Music signed act, Okailey Verse (OV) has said she won’t change the way she dresses because that’s her brand and personality despite the constant criticisms aimed at her.
The smooth-singing artist has often been bashed for dressing like a tomboy with boots, baggy jeans and oversized t-shirts staples in her wardrobe while she has cowries in her hair.
Explaining her stance in an interview with Graphic Showbiz asked critics to leave her alone.
“I am an artiste and we are creative people, I think that should be of importance rather than how I appear. The cowries in my hair are not from outside, they belong to us right here so I represent us, our culture and Africa.
“We should be allowed to do what will make us comfortable and when we are, it reflects in our delivery, as in the songs we churn out,” she told Graphic Showbiz
