Nigerian Afropop singer and songwriter, Yemi Alade took to her Snapchat to call out female singers in the Nigeria music industry for their lack of desire to help one another in the music industry.
The singer who gained prominence after winning the Peak Talent Show in 2009 said that the female singers are so petty and lack vision to increase the numbers of ladies in the music scene.
The “Johnny” crooner urged female artistes to emulate their male counterparts through cooperation. She wrote:
‘Ladies can we just get together, respect each other and not put ourselves against each other’, the Mama Africa singer started.
“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”, Yemi Alade concluded.
