Still waiting for the Naija Spice Girls

So we've got Styl-Plus (see their Call my name video below) our equivalent of Boys 2 Men, P-Square the Naija K-Ci & Jojo and we've had a number of other relatively successful boy bands in the last few years ie Plantation boyz. When are we going to have our first equivalent of the Spice girls? Is our society supressing the talents of young girls that want to go into the music business? Are women in entertainment in Nigeria considered promiscuous?

Only Ashis go into music in Lagos. Its a well documented fact that the women in music in Lagos sleep with the execs at the studios to get their deals and releases

spice girls equivalent. hmmm that will be interesting. i don't women are considered that way in the industry as there are a few female artists around. perhaps the execs dont think they will sell. rubbish i say.

serious double standard.....any woman in naija that sings 'secular' music automatically gets a lot of negativity thrown her way...its unfortunate...there was this group called 'emete' like last year tho...unforts they were TERRIBLE

hmmm true there are loads of boy bands no girl ones...mayb women just bicker n wd probably beat each other up arguing about who wants to sleep with the producer ...oops! Naughty mona...but to be honest most of them do.

Not sure I want Naija Spice Girls.

Naija Suga babes, yes please! The breeding ground for such talent will be in Jand and Yankee.

I dont know about suga babes equivalent but there are some really good females rappers on the scene now ppl like sasha and nkiru they r really good. but i think nigeria totally lacking in female dj's all the females do is stick thier butts in the camera.
