Nigerian singer, Yemi Alade, has condemned her female colleagues in the industry for not helping each other in the music business.


In her rant on Snapchat, Alade encouraged female artistes to emulate their male counterparts.

“Ladies can we just get together, respect each other and not put ourselves against each other,” the singer stated.

“Because we put ourselves against each other, the whole world always put us against each other. I know about female artistes who when you want to feature them on an album they have to be the only female artiste on that album. If they are not the only one on the album they won’t feature, that is why we are so few. It’s so petty, we are the cause of our downfall. Go and see the guys and see how they are doing well and killing it, it’s by cooperation and division of labour, we can’t do it alone,” Alade concluded.
