‘Female musicians in Nigeria are petty’- Singer, Yemi Alade
Singer, Yemi Alade has called out other female singers for not supporting each other in the music business.
She blamed pettiness and their lack of vision for the small number of ladies in the Nigerian music Industry via her snap. She tried to encourage the female artiste to emulate their male counterparts through cooperation.
‘Ladies can we just get together, respect each other and not put ourselves against each other. Because we put ourselves against each other that’s why the whole world always put us against each other.
I know about female artists who when you want to feature them on an album they have to be the only female artiste on that album. If they are not the only one on the album they won’t feature, that is why we are so few.”
It’s so petty, we are the cause of our downfall. Go and see the guys and see how they are doing well and killing it, it’s by cooperation and division of labour, we can’t do it alone” the singer concluded.
