Nigerian Afrobeats artist Yemi Alade asserts her superiority over fellow music queen Tiwa Savage in response to a fan who draws comparisons between the two. 


It is notable that Yemi Alade and Tiwa Savage are two of Nigeria's most well-known female musicians. 


Despite their victories, there have been speculations of a rivalry, at least between their fan communities. When Yemi Alade cautioned a fervent fan on platform X (now Twitter) not to criticize her Nigerian rival, she seemed to play down any notion of a soured rivalry.

The issue occurred when the self-proclaimed Mama Africa, set to sing at the opening ceremony of the 2023 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Côte d’Ivoire, posted a video clip with the statement,  “Africa, our time is NOW!!”

In response, a fan with the username @ThatNigerianlad commented on the post with a derogatory remark aimed at Tiwa Savage, stating, “U better than tiwa.”

Yemi Alade swiftly quashed the X user’s comment, asserting, “Comparison is the thief of Joy. We’re both winning…. celebrate and support us all.”
