South African OAP, Bonang Matheba says Mavin First Lady, Tiwa Savage is the only recognised female musician in Nigeria.
In an interview with 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.
Bonang said “For instance, Tiwa Savage is the only popular female voice in Nigeria that is greatly celebrated, while the rest of the country honours and recognises 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’.
