For so many years, female musicians have tried to hit the big time in the music business but none has managed to make it to the top against the odds of their male counterparts. Much as they put in a lot of hard work, the male musicians always seem to come out on top each passing year. Today we try to dissect why our female musicians have failed to upstage their male counterparts.
Our female musicians sale the same message to their market. They all sing about love and love. Unlike their male counterparts that try to look at diverse society issues, they all stick to the same thing.They all rotate on one main feature known as love and they forget to sing on other story angles hence not being diverse. Next is most of them have failed to balance their time between home and studio.
Most of our female musicians have the same character and that is seeking sympathy and looking soft. They are not aggressive and believe there nice voices and charming looks can keep them afloat.
Most of our musicians are in relationships that hold them back. The men tend to get hands on and don’t trust them as they hustle on. They are sometimes left with the situation where they have to choose between the family and career.
SEX AND MONEY.
Most of our musicians sell love and sex for money. The moment they begin earning the money from sex because of the limelight, they find this an easier avenue to make ends meet that hustle away singing in bars at night.
HIGH COST OF PRODUCTION AND PROMOTION AND UNREALISTIC DEMANDS FROM STAKEHOLDERS.
Most of our female musicians can’t afford the rising costs of producing there music and promoting as well. The competitiuon to the top is so tight that unless you have a backer, making it there can be really hard. All this coupled with the unrealistic sexual demands from promoters and producers leaves them crest fallen.
Such issues have made the state of female musicians rise to the top very hard and that’s y they can hardly upstage there male counterparts.
