Blessing Mariam Akiode, a rising singer from Nigeria, known as Candy Bleakz, recently spoke about women in the entertainment industry.
She mentioned that female artists face more challenges in the music industry compared to male artists because they don’t have strong connections with each other.
Candy Bleakz explained that her unique style of music makes it even harder for her to be accepted by other female artists.
The 23-year-old singer shared her thoughts on the Clout Africa podcast in the latest episode.
Candy Bleakz said, “For [Nigerian] female artistes generally, there is no relationship among female artistes. No vibe, no nothing, you know.
“Then now, my music is now even different from what they are doing, now I’m trying to like sync myself in, like, yo, I’m here. What’s up? So, it’s harder.”
