Imanse seeks more investment in female artistes

A singer, Omowunmi Adefosudo, aka Imanse, has said she wants to see more female artistes at the top of their game.

In a chat with Saturday Beats, she said, “I would like to see structure in the music industry, more females at the top, gender equality, and more investment in female artistes.

“I want more women to be given a chance. Also, I want a situation where a nobody can rise in the industry without too many alliances. Besides, I want a situation whereby an artiste can do good work, put it out there, and it goes as far as one can imagine.”

Highlighting the message behind her song, ‘Never in My Life’, she said, “’ Never in My Life’ is not a one-dimensional song and it has such a broad message. It runs deep and addresses any situation where one is not getting a fair share of something.”

Going down memory lane, the talented singer noted that music had always been a part of her. She said, “Music has always been part of my life. I grew up in a musical family. My dad used to listen to music at home all the time. He used to listen to King Sunny Ade, Celine Dion and Whitney Houston.

“I just knew I had a strong desire to write music. I joined the choir and wrote music for the choir as well. Eventually, when I started work, I decided to write music full-time. So, music has always been with me.”
