'Kade' crooner, Gift Iyumame Eke, aka Muma Gee, says if women put in extra effort and steer clear of distractions, they would be rated higher than their male counterpart in the music industry.

The 43-year-old singer disclosed that most successful male artistes invested more time and positive vibes to attain the heights they reach.

Speaking with Saturday Beats she said; "I used to belong to the school of thought that females in the Nigerian music industry were disenfranchised. However, knowledge, time, maturity and research made me realise it’s the effect of our traditional beliefs that the girl-child is positioned to play a second fiddle.

"Subconsciously or unknowingly, it plays out in our attitude towards professionalism and commitment to work. The male artistes put in more to attain the heights they get to.

"I cannot say the same for the women and I am guilty as charged. There are lots of other distractions, both natural and artificial, but the bottom line is that if women put in as much effort as men do, there would be equal results."
