Veteran record producer and music executive Don Jazzy has expressed concern over Nigeria’s lack of support for female musicians.

The Mavin Records boss lamented that Nigerians don’t consume as much music from female artistes compared to their male colleagues, despite the women’s hard work.

A netizen with the X handle @Lahon199x highlighted this issue, noting that Nigerian female artists have a better chance of becoming global A-listers than achieving similar status in Nigeria.
