Entertainment Africa : If I laugh too much they’ll call me a prostitute – Salawa Abeni



If I laugh too much they’ll call me a prostitute – Salawa Abeni
Salawa Abeni, who is popular for a unique genre of African music ‘Waka’ has revealed that one of the lyrics in her songs; “if I laugh too much, they will call me a prostitute, if I frown too much, they will say I am proud” was reflecting her dealings with men who still flank her even at 57.
The veteran musician said that she has learnt to treat all of such men with dignity and respect while turning them down. She said, “Men still pester me for love but I am always very careful with them even though you cannot know which one is good or bad from mere appearance.

“I mentioned it in one of my songs that if I laugh too much, they will call me a prostitute, if I frown too much, they will say I am proud. But it is good to be very diplomatic with them and not to be rude to them.”

On the spate of broken homes on the increase in recent time, especially in the entertainment industry, Abeni said that people should make their marriages work.


She said, “The truth is that every adult male or female wants to be in a happy marriage. They should note that two wrongs can never make a right. One has to be cool-headed and patient.
“Those in the entertainment industry need to take things easy. While they make others happy with their talents, they must also make themselves happy by building good homes.”
