Twitter influencer, Kelvin Odanz has taken to Twitter to constructively criticize Nigerian female singers for never putting on/helping any up-and-coming female artist or even male artist at all.
According to Odanz’ observation, successful female artists like Tiwa, Simi, Teni, and co’, most especially Simi, are always talking about women supporting women but they never support each other and even support those that are struggling to make a name in the industry and he wanted to know it is so with the female artists.
Odanz pointed out that Male artists are known for helping up-and-coming artists and investing in them till they become a big brand but such can’t be said of any female artist.
You can point out upcoming male artists that were discovered, groomed and helped onto the limelight by establishing male artists like Davido, WizKid, Banky W etc
What are established female artists like Tiwa, Simi, Teni and co doing to help other upcoming female artists?
This is a general question to successful female artists in the music industry since I became familiar with Nigerian music.Which female artists was discovered, groomed and helped onto the limelight by another older established female artists. I really want to know if there are any
I am also very curious to know what Simi is doing to help females into the music industry. She seem to be a outspoken “feminist” in the industry.
I mean, aside from her singing a feminist-themed song “woman” that appeals to women and brings more money into her bank account
Why is it very common for men to give other upcoming male artists a platform the moment they become successful themselves in the music industry. And then it is quite rare to see successful female artists in the industry giving other upcoming female artists a platform. Question
Just for reference. 5 years ago, barely anyone knew Zlatan, Naira Marley or Bella Shmurda. But today, they all own their own music labels with artists (mostly male) signed under them.
Tiwa has been a big name in the industry since 2012. Almost a decade on top of her game…
And she doesn’t own a music label, despite being on the scene for much longer. Why is that tho? What are the barriers for successful female artists?
And I can’t point at any upcoming female artist she’s discovered or helped find her footing in the industry. Why is that?
Just to conclude, Tiwa Savage is a more successful and recognised artist than Naira Marley globally. Their streaming numbers is evidence.
A single feature from Tiwa of an unknown upcoming female artist will be a breakthrough. Why isn’t that sort of support/grooming happening?!
