Caroline Sam, known in the music industry as Maheeda is a woman renown for her knack of courting controversies like it is some dinner or buffet to her.
Curious as ever, Showtime sought the cause of her trouble and the singer replied by sending a link to a story which chronicled a protest by prostitutes led by a female prostitute, Patoo Abraham on the rights of prostitutes to ply their trade legally like other professions. According to the story, the protest held sometime in Lagos and the commercial sex workers wore T-shirts screaming “Sex work is work, we need our rights.”
So, how could this get Maheeda in trouble? We asked her. “Don’t you know that very soon this group may be asking me to come and deliver a speech?” she answered.
The groups are operating under the names; Nigerian chapter of African Sex Workers Alliance (ASWA) and the Women of Power Initiative (WOPI). Of course, if the groups would be needing a resource person, who is better qualified than Maheeda who has had both local and international experience on the job.
