Nigerian singer, Teniola Apata, popularly known as Teni, has taken to social media to warn people from referring to women in the music industry as “female artists.”
Sharing on the microblogging platform, twitter, she noted that there was no need to include the female tag when referring to them.
According to her, they were actually better than their male counterparts in the business when it came to steeze, music and performance.
“MAKE UNA COMOT THAT “FEMALE” TAG. WE ARE FU*KING ARTISTS. AND NA WE BAD PASS FOR EVERYTHING. STEEZE O, MUSIC O, PERFORMANCE, EVERYTHING.”
The 32-year-old singer recently made headlines after a video surfaced of his daughter boasting about his riches, claiming that he is wealthier than the fathers of all her peers.
In the video, she advises the other children not to get too excited when their fathers earn money because it cannot surpass her father’s wealth.
The video sparked a flurry of reactions from Nigerians on social media, including former Big Brother Naija housemate Tega, who shared her thoughts in the comments section of a blog that posted the video.
As a mother herself, Tega criticized the video, deeming it wrong on all levels and questioning how it found its way onto the internet.
“Wrong on all levels… how did this even get on here?” The mother of one wrote.
