I Slept With Many Big Artists In Return For Fame Which Never Came, Xighubu

Desperate to rise to the top of the entertainment industry, singer Xighubu has revealed that she had to offer sexual favours to many big stars in the industry but still success has evaded her.

Xghubu, real name, Tshimollo Masemola said she hopes by sharing her experience in the music industry, some young girls who will follow after her will learn a thing or two.

The 24-year-old from Mamelodi in Tshwane said her nine years in the industry had been tough with men promising to make her dreams come true if she had sex with them but nothing has materialised.

Xighubu said she started her music career while in high school and dropped out to focus on music.

“I have slept with a lot of big artists and they would lie to me. They would promise me big things like taking me far in my career but that never happened. They all lied to me,” she told Daily Sun.

“I wanted to take shortcuts, thinking things would happen quickly for me. However, I learnt the hard way that things don’t happen like that.”

Xighubu said she felt the need to speak up because young female musicians needed to hear her story and know what to expect in the industry.

“This is a male-dominated industry and some of them will use women for sex and promise them success. I want to warn them because I’ve grown,” she said.

“I don’t want any other woman to go through what I went through because most women will be broken if they have to go through this.”

She said that she would not name and shame the sex pests because she did not want to ruin their careers.

“My aim is not to ruin anybody’s career because if I ruin their careers by naming them, mine could be affected too. I am not pressing charges because I consented, not knowing I was breaking myself,” she said.

Xighubu said she had been contacted by victims like her, some of who were even raped but are afraid to speak up.

“I’m glad I started the dialogue. I’ve offered to help them when they want to talk to someone. I’ve also told them to get counselling and that’s what I want to do as well,” she said.
