Rapper Candy Bleakz explains how lack of relationship among female artistes’ frustrates her career
Nigerian female emcee, Candy Bleakz has said there is no relationship or collaborative spirit amongst female musicians in the country.
She made the statement while speaking on a podcast about how she relates with other women in the industry, since most are singers while she’s a rapper.
Candy noted that the first issue is that the females are unable to support themselves because they do not have the kind of relationship that their male counterparts have.
According to her, the fact that she does a genre which is different from what most female musicians do makes it harder, because she has to put in extra efforts to blend in and be recognised.

She lamented that the industry is filled with wicked people who are trying to ruin each other’s careers by any means necessary.
Ruth also alluded to the idea of actors, actresses and filmmakers engaging in diabolic acts in other to bring another person down.
She said; “In my experience, Nollywood is full of wicked and unbelievably evil people that wake up every day to wish their fellow humans bad. Someone that one has never offended would go somewhere to plan evil against one.
This is just because they are jealous that one is doing well. Nobody can have a genuine friend in Nollywood. They only want to celebrate one when one is dead.”
