Let the competition begin! Nigerians never cease to amaze us. The truth is, both Tiwa Savage and Yemi Alade are unique in their own way and as such should not be compared in anyway. Not just that, Tiwa has never for one day referred to herself as Mama Africa, that is something that Yemi Alade is being known for, based on her style of music as she is found of portraying African traditional outfit in almost all of her music videos.
Comparing Yemi and Tiwa is a major disrespect to both stars. Yes they may have gotten off on a wrong foot which no one seems to really understand the genesis of their low key fight and shade, but their issues is not supposed to be used as an avenue to compare their success or greatness.
You’ll recall that Tiwa and Yemi were very good friends in the industry, up until their little fight that has taken for ever to settle. The riff didn’t just end between Tiwa and Yemi, but at some point Seyi Shay and Victoria Kimani joined Yemi’s gang fighting against Tiwa, which by the way, Tiwa seems unbothered about.
Since the release of Tiwa’s Celia, a twelve track album, which dropped at midnight on the 28th of August 2020, there has been a lot of comparison between her and Yemi Alade. Now this is not coming as a shock as we have all been expecting this because its not the first time they are both being placed side by side for comparison.
The album Celia which had an emotional feelings surrounding it, has been anticipated by many, and finally every one can now be at peace with the kelekele love singer as she finally released the most anticipated album.
Tiwa took to her Instagram handle to talk about her album Celia, the secret behind the name and what it means to her. She revealed that the album is dedicated to her mother; the cover of the album says it all.
With her drive for more, Tiwa Savage has indeed proven to be way ahead of her other female colleagues. She tries not to follow the multitude by dropping standards all round.
But just so we are clear on the comparison, aside Yemi Alade, do you see other female artist competing with Tiwa Savage?
