Omawumi doesn’t believe that the normal understanding that women have a shorter career span in music is true, adding that it is “discrimination against women.”
The “Timeless” album maker and mother—in a recent interview with Hip TV—discussed about this belief in the Nigerian music industry.
“In my opinion, I don’t think the [career of women in entertainment] are usually caught short,” she said, adding, “People thought that of me when I got married and had kids. I don’t think that is fair.”
She adviced that passion, which is all that matters, is what record executives should look out for, because “passion trumps all.”
