Tiwa Savage and Yemi Alade nominated for 'Best Female Artiste' 2016

This is indeed a battle for supremacy. Who will win the best female artiste of the year?
Tiwa savage and Yemi Alade have been nominated alongside other artistes in the
Best Female Artiste, West Africa category, respectively for their songs, ‘If I Start to Talk’ and ‘Na Go De’.
The subtle supremacy question between top Nigerian female hip hop acts, Tiwa Savage and Yemi Alade, will get a verdict in November when the grand finale of this year’s All Africa Music Festival holds in Lagos.
Tiwa Savage is the biggest female artiste in Africa, with huge crossover. The industry took a shift in Tiwa’s absence, as Yemi Alade grew in stature
A lot of people agree that Tiwa and Alade have, in recent years, are among the top artiste helping to shape the content of Nigerian music.
Although Savage broke into the limelight earlier, Alade later came in very forcefully and she does not seem to have dropped since then.
Where Tiwa may have an edge over Yemi in terms of a piercing voice, Yemi’s songs are usually very forceful, just as the energy she invests in performances and videos can be phenomenal.
When AFRIMA’s panel of judges eventually come up with their judegement on November 16, 2016 it will be interesting to see where the pendulum will swing.
Also nominated for the AFRIMA Best Female Artiste of the Year, West Africa are Aramide, with the song, I Don’t Care; Niniola, J’ete; Seyi Shay, Right Now; and Temi Doll Face, School Hour.
Nominated from Senegal is Adiouza, with the song, Daddy; while Josey is carrying the Ivoriene flag with her song,  Diplome.
The list for the Best Male Artiste, West Africa is also very interesting. Here Flavour and Wizkid are in competition with their songs Dance and Final Baba Nla respectively.
Brymo and Tekno are also in the race with In the City and Duro, while two Ghanaian stars, Okyeame and Sarkodie,  are shortlisted for their songs, Small Small and Hand to Mouth.
From Mali, Idikiba & co completes the list with Confiance.
Many other artistes have been nominated in other regions of the continent, while the organisers said nominations in other categories of the competition would soon be released.
Unveiling the nominees’ list, the African Union and the 13-man jury expressed excitement at the quantity and quality of the entries received.
According to the moderator of the adjudication process, Mr. Mike Strano, about 2,700 entries from African music professionals were received between of May 20, 2015 and July 30, 2016 when the submission lasted.
