Female artistes often lament about the way their male colleagues treat them in the entertainment sector, declaring that there are no equal opportunities in the entertainment industry.
Nigerian singer, Tiwa Savage took to her Twitter lamenting over women trying to undermine her achievement.
According to her: “For all the women trying to undermine my achievements I don’t pray the same for you. One day you will realize it should inspire you and not make you hate”.
She further stated that women are not respected in Nigeria.
“Women are not respected in this country”, she wrote.
Recall that Seyi Shay had recently hinted that there is a lot of competition in the entertainment industry.
“There is a lot of competition in the industry, healthy and unhealthy. There are some people that do not want…you know…how do I put this in a very nice way, there are some people that want other people talents to outshine them. So in an industry that is very competitive, you are always going to get the whole knocking, blocking, stopping…do you understand? Those things are there in the industry, especially in my industry. Sometimes it’s also about the team you have around you.
“So as I said, I have been out here for about six years and I have a couple of good managers and a couple of not so good managers but anytime you make one mistake, it kind of sets you back a little bit and that’s a problem. And I just feel like generally, timing is everything and it’s my time now. I just feel that there is a time and a season and even if the world says no and God says yes, then that is it. I’m ready now… I feel like if things had happened then, some people won’t be able to handle it and maybe even me”.
For all the women trying to undermine my achievements I don’t pray the same for you. One day you will realize it should inspire you and not make you hate
