Kampala – Kasese born dancehall artiste Jesca Pafra alias J-Pafra has accused singer and music producer Andrew Ojambo Alias aka An-dre on the beat/Daddy Andre of sexual harassment, Grace Turyatunga reports.
While appearing on NBS TV’s Uncut Kalakata hosted by Zahara Toto and Anatalia Thursday, March 27, the singer claimed that Daddy Andre harassed her in his Najjera studio as well.
This comes after another upcoming artist known as Nadia Rania came out few days ago claiming that Producer Andre has been begging for sex as a pre-requisite for them to shoot a music video for their collaboration
According to Pafra, her experience working with Andre came to an awkward climax after the latter smooched her without reciprocation while she pursued a chance to have her song recorded in his studio.
“These artistes who have achieved something are using many young female artistes. They are using us even after we pay our money. I have a personal experience with Daddy Andre, I paid him UGX1.5m to record my song, then he asked that I go to his studio at home in Najjera,” she said.
“When I reached the house, his studio was dark, he started touching me all over then he started ‘squeezing me’, I was disgusted and left the studio and refused to return until he met me in the sitting room. I succeeded but he took it personal thereafter,” J-Pafra added.
Pafra claims that Andre on many occasions thereafter deliberately refused to hand over the song demos to her, but insisted on asking for sex first.
“One time he called me and said he was coming to Bwera, Kasese to handover the demos, but on condition that we sleep together,” Pafra claims.
“Upcoming artistes are suffering from these artistes and producers, we are being used, they think we admire them or must sleep with them,” she added.
She called upon Minister Nakiwala Kiyingi to reign on the matter, saying; “It is not only Daddy Andre, but there are also many more.”
However during the same show, Andre was interviewed concerning the allegations and he denied the accusations and instead accused the musicians of using him as a career ladder.
