So lately, Yemi Alade has been hustling hard you know. Perhaps, taking the advantage afforded her when Tiwa Savage had a hiatus owing to her maternal duties.

Both female artistes were nominated in same category as Best Female Act from their regions in Afrimma. Both lost the to Ghanaian songstress Eyfa in Afrimma. Yemi Alade won in the category of Best Female in the MAMA’s over Tiwa Savage.

Winning the Best Female award at the MAMA’s makes Yemi Alade the first female to win the award twice back to back. She has also earlier earned back to back nominations on the BET as Best International Act: Africa.

On the down side, Tiwa is yet to win any awards she has been nominated for this year.

    If Yemi Alade had an international deal, this article will not be up. Just shows you how much Nigerians value international recognition over local impact. Yemi Alade owns the female African scene at the moment. Tiwa Savage is just more internationally appealing although Yemi Alade’s songs are played all around the world. Just that Tiwa fits more of the western vibe which Nigerians are obsessed with.


    people should not gets things wrong… am a big fan of all the two Divas but let the truth be told… Tiwa is a bomb but Yemi pushed it harder and considering the number of international collaboration she is getting, i guess it has placed her where she has got to. they are all ours.
