Why I Don't Consider Tiwa Savage A Friend - Yemi Alade

There have been rumours of silent war between two of Nigeria's foremost women in music - Yemi Alade and Tiwa Savage. In a chat with Sunday Spice, Yemi said although she don't consider Tiwa a friend, there's no beef of any sort between them.
"I don’t know why the media takes pleasure in pitting great women against one another," Yemi said of Tiwa Savage, Seyi Shay and Chidinma Ekile. Speaking further, the Mama Africa crooner added, "Have you ever seen any text message from any of us lambasting another person? There’s no proof of these things; it’s just in the imagination of people." adding that, "I’ve never stopped working and I was already working before Tiwa Savage came to Nigeria. I am a fan of their music, and on my Snapchat page, I usually dance to their songs. I do not consider Tiwa Savage a friend because I don’t know her favourite colour or meal and other intimate things. She is just my colleague."

The multi award winning songstress also spoke on the sexual rot in the music industry. According to her, show promoters and record label owners are guilty of this, but once she spots the sign, she runs. She also mentioned that she had people in the music industry she looked up to when she started, but unfortunately they all wanted s3x too.
She said, "Record label owners and show promoters are all guilty of this. Sexual harassment comes in different levels; some are intense, some are subtle, and some even come through third parties. However, I’ve never found myself in a situation that felt very uncomfortable. Once I see the signs, I run and the person would not even have the opportunity to go through with his evil plans. There are some people who I looked up to in the industry but surprisingly, they also wanted sex.
On her Role models, "In Nigeria, I love P-Square and Omawumi. Outside the country, it’s Beyonce and Jay Z.

On her current projects, "We’re working on my first worldwide tour which would last about a year. I will visit all the continents in the world.
