Nigerian singer, Simisola Kosoko, aka Simi, has explained that relationships between female artists are not so cordial because they are often pitted against each other.

In a recent interview with Angela Yee, the ‘Men Are Crazy’ crooner admitted that fans pitting female artists against each other put pressure on their relationship.

Simi said, “Fans pit women against each other in the music industry. It’s so intense sometimes. Sometimes it can be really distracting because there are not as many of us in the [music] industry compared to the guys.

“When a new female artist breaks into the industry, they [fans] just pit her against us with all forms of comparisons.

“We can all thrive. I have spoken about women several times even in my songs. But because I’m an artist people assume that the only way my talking about women can be valid is by featuring women in my songs. It’s just so weird because there are women in different walks of life.

“They do pit us against each other a lot and I think sometimes that puts some pressure on the kind of relationship that we would have otherwise.”
