Candy Bleakz: Nigerian female artists lack support for one another

Nigerian singer Akiode Blessing Maria, better known as Candy Bleakz, has lamented the lack of support for up-and-coming female Nigerian artists from their established female colleagues.

She stated that no female Nigerian artist can claim to have helped another female artist.

The singer recently appeared on the latest episode of “The Honest Bunch” podcast, co-hosted by actor Chinedu Ani Emmanuel, also known as Nedu.

“There’s no female artiste in Nigeria right now that you can say has helped bring out another female artiste,” she said.

She also discussed her tomboyish nature and how her mother’s attempts to change her were unsuccessful.

“I’m a tomboy naturally. I’m not doing it for music promotion. My mum had tried to change me but she couldn’t,” she said.
