The music industry no doubt is highly competitive, we have upcoming acts popping everywhere and everytime both men and women alike but the race to blow as a male artiste is way stiffer than their female counterpart.
The female subset of the industry have witness little competition, one few artistes have really dominated, the likes of omawunmi, waje, the late Goldie, yemi alade, sasha. But the truth is only one of them have really given the males a run for their money which is tiwa savage, she is a certified international artiste having several labels including Sony/ATV Music Publishing, ROC Nation, 323 Entertainment, Mavin Records. She has every right to lay claim as a the queen of African music (she’s Daenerys Targaryen if African music was game of thrones).
But there is no escaping being a woman, she lost her grip of the throne due to maternity leave and marriage issues, she also lost her sexiness, she won her last award in 2015. The vacant position was quickly occupied by Yemi Alade ( mama Africa), soldier come and go but barrack remain.
She has won the best female in MTV African music award back to back and if that doesn’t solidifies her dominance i don’t know what does.
Haven broke into limelight with “FIMISILE” in since 2009 it’s safe to say she has paid her dues and she’s due to take over the coveted crown.
