Top six embarrassing celebrity moments
Having an embarrassing moment in the entertainment industry is not unusual. Celebrities are subjected to these occurrences on a regular basis. It happens even on the red carpet, where everyone is dressed up and looking great.

It is normal to have these experiences. Check out the top six embarrassing celebrity moments:

Tiwa Savage

Queen of Afro-beats and the first lady of Mavin record label, Tiwa Savage, has suffered an embarrassing moment right before she was about to hit the stage. Being the good performer that she is on stage am sure this was a bummer. 

Tiwa, the Eminando hitmaker and songwriter, is always showing off her best dance moves, and wow, she can dance. She narrated her oops moment during the album launch of  You Are My African Queen hitmaker, 2Face at the Eko hotel.

Unfortunately, her dress arrived five minutes late and she was not able to try it one before heading to the stage. Her zip ripped exposing her whole back. Yikes! According to Vanguard, she stated:

“My dress for the performance came literally 5 minutes before I was supposed to go on stage. I didn’t have time to try it on before my performance. The emcee announced: “Next on stage is rising star, Tiwa Savage.mSo I quickly put it on. As soon as I was walking on stage, the zip ripped at the back and I didn’t even know."

Tiwa had no idea and was it not for singer and crooner Banky W, popularly known for his hit song Made for you a beautiful song, by the way, Tiwa could have suffered a huge malfunction on stage.

Unfortunately, the dress could not be repaired and she had to change into something different. Ouch, that was tough. We can only imagine how the audience was behaving as they waited for the Eminando star to get on stage.


This embarrassing moment is intense, we already feel embarrassed on behalf of the singer. Omawumi is famously known for her numerous songs, that include My Life, Warn Yourself, and Billionaire, to name a few

She is also popular for being daring when it comes to her fashion sense. Unfortunately this time it did not work out as intended. Omawumi’s dress ended up not hiding what it was supposed to hide but revealing her breasts at an event. According to Nairaland she stated:

“The dress I wore to the event has feathers in the front of it. Before I left my hotel room, I asked someone if the dress was okay and she said yes. I wore the dress to the show and when I was performing at the show, paparazzi took my pictures and released them. I realized that my breasts were practically pouring out of my dress, there was no way I could have put my breasts back.”

We have to admit that the dress was fire but why did it have to do her like that? Sometimes it's the things we love that totally disappoint us. The singer is yet to forget this moment. 


The Abule and Girlie ‘O’ owner, Patrick Nnaemeka Okorie, alias Patoranking, will never forget the day his CD ruined his performance at an event.

He was so excited to be on stage, but when he got there, everything was messed up and Patoranking couldn't do anything because the sound wasn't working properly. According to Tori news he said: 

“My most embarrassing moment as an artist was in 2008 when I went for a show in Ghana. I did not know the CD I was meant to use to perform, was of low quality. The CD wasn’t properly mixed and mastered.”

During the event, he also couldn't connect with the audience, and at one point had to tell the DJ to stop playing the song so he could do freestyles.

This is so heartbreaking keeping in mind how his songs are such a vibe. The crowd really suffered on this one.

Yemi Alade

African pop star Yemi Alade is known for her famous song Johnny, which has garnered 141 million views on YouTube. 

Just imagine forgetting your own name at an award show, crazy right?

Well, not so much for Yemi, after her name was called out, as the winner of the Best Female Artist category at the MTV Africa Music Awards and she froze. It seems the Bum Bum star was too excited she forgot she had to go up and pick the award. According to How NG she said:

“When I won the award, my manager told me to stand up like three times.It was like I had forgotten my own name. My mentors, Peter and Paul of Psquare had to also remind me that I needed to go pick the award.”

We are sure everyone at the event was just staring at her wondering why she is not reacting to the news or even going to receive her award. 


One of the best rappers that the country has ever had and owner of the hit song  Motigbana has also had his share of an embarrassing moment. 

He was in the studio when a big musician came in to record a song. After some time the musician said he was hungry. Olamide being the youngest in there was sent to buy some food. He decided to add some of his money since the amount he was given was not enough. According to Nairaland Olamide said:

“I was in the studio when this senior act came in to record a song and he said he was hungry. Who else will he send to buy food if not me who was the youngest in the studio? The money he gave me was not enough for his meal, so I decided to add my own money. I even used my own money to pay for transportation."

Well, Olamide’s idea to use some of his money to buy the meal took a wrong turn. The big shot in the studio was not happy about it and claimed if he wanted more money he could have asked, instead of using tricks to steal from him.

At least Olamide got a win from the oops moment because the guy is one of his biggest supporters. So, not much of an embarrassing moment.

According to Naija news, during Tems performance at the O2 Arena in London, the owner of Starboy record label, Wizkid thought it was a good idea to try and rock the female star.

Tems who is popular for her song Damages that has garnered 10 million views on YouTube, was not happy with his move. She did not hide how uncomfortable she was with Wizkid trying to carry her, even though they were both on stage.

Fans were not pleased with his actions from the video and demanded he apologizes to Tems.

Tems, however, came out to defend the Ojuelegba star and expressed her love for Wizkid stating that he still remains her brother.

 We bet Wizkid will not try that again.
