Singer Candy Bleakz criticizes lack of support for new female artists in Nigeria


Singer Candy Bleakz has spoken out about the lack of support for new female artists in Nigeria from their more successful female colleagues.

On a recent episode of ‘The Honest Bunch’ podcast, hosted by actor Chinedu Ani Emmanuel (known as Nedu), Bleakz made a strong statement: “There’s no female artiste in Nigeria right now that you can say has helped bring out another female artiste.”

This claim suggests that established female artists in Nigeria aren’t doing enough to help newcomers in the industry.

Bleakz, known for her song ‘Wole’, also talked about her personal style.She described herself as a tomboy, saying it’s not an act for her music career. “I’m a tomboy naturally. I’m not doing it for music promotion,” she explained.

She added that her mother had tried to change this about her but wasn’t successful.
