Prominent South African TV presenter and rapper AKA’s girlfriend Bonang Matheba, in a recent interview, insisted 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 called on the Nigerian entertainment industry to quickly tie the loose ends on their regard for female creatives.
Here’s what she said:-
“Tiwa Savage is the only popular female voice in Nigeria that is greatly celebrated, while the rest of the country honors 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.”
