She is well known for promoting her African village roots, where she frequently holds festivals and events encouraging the local children to develop their creativity and sense of self-worth. She has contribute massively in the music industry which need to be nominated for some category. She is very energetic woman who is so passionate when its come to music but its seems the industry is not recognized her effort. There are also female Musicians who also contribute alot like sherifa Gunu, Sister Affia, Wendy shy, Eno Barony, Mvz Vee, Adina etc some of them get nomination but other don't and more of the male get nominated but there is a saying that, what man can do a woman can do better.
Although I don't know their style of selection, but I think the award team is not been fair to the women's in the industry. what do you also think about the industry the way they treat the females artist. Please like, share and also comments your opinion.
