Nigerian afropop singer, Yemi Eberechi Alade, popularly known as Yemi Alade is very furious with Nigerian music critics for challenging the lyrics of her songs.
The Gobe singer, who is known to never hold back on her opinion, went on a Snapchat rant yesterday, stating that she is fed up with the way these critics come after her song lyrics.
Yemi, who has been nominated for the 2016 All Africa Music Awards, also stated that she feels there is a gender bias amongst music critics in Nigeria. According to her, the songs of female musicians are more criticised than those of their male counterparts in Nigeria.
“I don tire for all this self-acclaimed critics in this Nigeria. They don’t do any form of research, they don’t listen to the artistes’ songs” she began her rant. ” I‘m upset about this kind of thing, I just really think that people don’t know when they’re actually being biased gender wise. They don’t know when they’re trying to pick on females. Enough is enough, y’all just shut up!
Yemi Alade is gearing up for her world tour which is set to take place in the United Kingdom, the rest of Europe and Asia.
