Tems and Ayra Starr have achieved a lot more than Wizkid

Nigerian rapper and singer, Tochukwu Gbubemi Ojogwu, popularly known as OdumoduBlvck, has declared his female colleagues Tems and Ayra Starr as the biggest and most achievable artistes in the entire music industry.

OdumoduBlvck, who was a guest in a ‘Cocktails & Takeaways’ show hosted by Madame Joyce, revealed that the duo have achieved a lot more than other singers like Wizkid, Davido, Burna Boy and even legend Afrobeat star Fela Anikulapo.

According to the self-acclaimed ‘industry machine’, being a female musician in the entertainment industry is the hardest job in the world.

He emphasized on a prominent issues faced by the female singer where show promoters or music producers ask to sleep with them so as to give them opportunity.

Odumodu went ahead to narrate his experience after meeting Tems during a flight to London and he applauded her and Ayra Starr’s success.

In his words, “When I was coming to London, I was on the same flight with Tems’ manager, Don Awon. I told Tems, ‘Big up, you did it. What you and Ayra Starr have done is bigger than anything Wizkid, Burna Boy and even Fela have done. Quote me anywhere.”

“Because as a female artiste, out of every 10 show promoters, 5 want to have s*x with you, out of every 10 producers, 5 want to have s*x with you, out of every 10 artists that you look up to and need help from them, 5 want to have s*x with you.

“I can’t imagine being in that situation. And after dodging all those things, you still make good music. Remember, the number one hardest job in this world is being a woman.”

“The second hardest job is being an artiste because there are over 100 million artistes. How are you going to make it out of the thousands of songs that drop every day? Why should they listen to your own?”

“It’s not like you’re doing a job that your payment is guaranteed. As an artiste, there’s no guaranteed payment, you’ve to make it for people to pay you. It took me about six years to get my first good cheque. So imagine being a babe and an artiste and you still make it. That’s impressive.”

“Ayra Starr and Tems recently released their albums, ‘The Year I Turned 21’ and ‘Born In The Wild’, respectively.”

“‘The Year I Turned 21’ became the first album by a female Nigerian artiste to debut on the U.S Billboard 200 while ‘Born In The Wild’ became the highest-peaking album by a female Nigerian artiste, charting at 56.”
