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.
“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.”
