Pominent South African TV presenter and On Air Personality, Bonang Matheba, has 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.
In a recent interview with Saturday Tribune Bonang called on the Nigerian entertainment industry to quickly tie the loose ends on their regard for female creatives.
“For instance, Tiwa Savage is the only popular female voice in Nigeria that is greatly celebrated, while the rest of the country honours and recognises 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,” she said.
