Female artists comment achingly that they have to work twice and even thrice harder than the men to stay on top of their grind.
Nobody will deny the fact that the Nigerian music industry is dominated by the male gender.
We have asked this question for the umpteenth time why female artists do not prevail in the game as much as men do?
There seems to be too many considering factors weighing the females artists down in the industry than the actual answer.
All this is not to say that there are no females artist thriving in the music market at all, we have quite a number of them but they are not as close to the center stage as the men.
We have a few female artists who are seated on the throne of their grind in all their glory.
Check them out:
Tiwa Savage in spite of everything, drama, controversies here and there, the heavy backlash on her latest album is still putting in her all to be the #1 African Bad Girl.
Married to an equally fantastic singer, Simi is a nursing mother of a 9-month old baby who doesn’t hide the tasking sides of doubling as a mum and a sought after singer.
In Davido’s words, Teni made the decision to move back to Nigeria to chase her dream as he did.
This has really panned out well for her, now we can mention Teni and Davido in the same line.
Tems came in new to the industry with an entirely different sound nobody thought could be hugely accepted enough to skyrocket her to the top of the game and there she is.
The first and only singer that will come to mind at the mention of ‘Afro House’ music category in Nigeria is Niniola. She has been strongly holding down the genre for years. Give it to her!👏
