In an industry blessed with many talented female artistes, South African presenter and OAP, Bonang Matheba thinks Mavin’s First Lady, Tiwa Savage is the only Femcee in the country.
In an interview with Nigerian Tribune, she said that the music industry of her country celebrates female entertainers more than Nigeria’s, which to her mind, has bigger clout and should therefore set good examples.
“For instance, Tiwa Savage is the only popular female voice in Nigeria that is greatly celebrated, while the rest of the country honours and recognizes men more. This is an area of observation that can be more elevated.
Our [South Africa’s] industry is far much kinder to our female counterparts and genuinely celebrates them and allows them to shine,”
Does this mean the likes of Yemi Alade, Simi and Seyi Shay are not celebrated enough?
