Is it now Yemi Alade over Tiwa Savage??? 😕 Is Tiwa Savage still reigning as the queen 👑 of Nigerian pop??
If you ask me; na who I go ask?
The matter wey we see so, e tay wey e start
No be me go talk am, e heavy for mouth
If you ask me…The matter for ground…
Eh! Na who I go ask? 😯
Okay that chorus explains my mode and intent. We will share our opinions. Let it be known that even though both artistes are cool friends, the fans, are always blowing the embers of rivalry between both female artistes.
I personally love 😍 both Tiwa Savage and Yemi Alade. In fact, I have taken turns to crush on them on different occasions. Don’t judge me yet 😂. It’s all good, come on they are both vivacious ladies.
To a large extent, Nigerian music lovers on a subliminal level put Tiwa Savage ahead of Miss Yemi Alade. The former is crowned queen while the latter is seen as a worthy contender for the crown.
So lately, miss Yemi Alade has been hustling hard you know. Perhaps, taking the advantage afforded her when Tiwa Savage had a hiatus owing to her maternal duties.
Tiwa Savage and Yemi Alade are on a tie, album wise. Tiwa has two ‘Once Upon A Time‘ and ‘R.E.D‘, released in 2013 and 2015. Yemi owns two albums to her name ‘King of Queens‘ and ‘Mama Africa’, which were released in 2014 and 2016. A good number of hits to their names and luscious endorsement deals to brag about.
The bottom line is simple, so far so good Yemi Alade and Tiwa Savage have both been nominated for a handful of awards this year. Emphasis on the just concluded Afrimma Awards as held in Texas, US and MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMA) showcased in Johannesburg, South Africa.
Both female artistes mummy Jamil and Miss Yemi were nominate in same category as Best Female Act from their regions in Afrimma. Both lost the to Ghanaian songstress Eyfa in Afrimma. Yemi won in the category of Best Female in the MAMA’s over Tiwa.
Winning the Best Female award at the MAMA’s makes Yemi Alade the first female to win the award twice back to back. She has also earlier earned back to back nominations on the BET as Best International Act: Africa.
On the down side, Tiwa is yet to win any awards she has been nominated for this year.
Has Yemi Alade ousted Tiwa Savage to become the new queen of Nigerian pop music?
Here are some opinions on based on the outcome of MTV MAMA 2016, twitter users reacted the most.

So Tiwa Savage didn't win best female artist @ #MTVMAMA2016. Was hoping she would. Congrats, Yemi Alade.
