- Queen of Afro-Trap, Independence Akuoma Jorji, has called out top female singers Tiwa Savage, Tems and Teni in a video
- During an Instagram live session, the singer queried why the ladies haven't used their platform to uplift upcoming female stars
- Ms Jorji said Teni calls herself Sugar Mummy but hasn't used the position to bring up anyone
Tems, Tiwa Savage and Teni are some of the few female Nigerian stars who have worked hard to get to the top and have stayed relevant over the years.
In a video sighted online, Independence Akuoma Jorji, the queen of Afro-Trap, as she is called, queried why the singers do not help or support upcoming female colleagues.
She added that Teni calls herself Gen Z sugar mummy but hasn't used that position to influence another woman's career in the industry.
Jorji added that these ladies have the platform to make a significant change, and even she, who has little influence, has helped many upcoming artists.
This is not the first time a conversation like this has come up. In 2021, a Twitter user called out Teni, Tiwa Savage and Simi over their influence in the industry.
