Singer, Omawumi Megbele popularly known as Omawumi is concerned with the way record labels think that they cannot sign female artists because they feel they won’t last in their careers after marriage.
In a recent interview with a Tv station, she expressed the way she felt about the whole situations, urging record labels to encourage female artists especially those that are married rather than leaving them out.
She set herself as an example to buttress her point, after getting married and having two children, she is still in the industry.
“That’s woman discrimination, “Well, in my opinion, I don’t think women’s career are usually cut short. Some people thought that of me because I got married and I had kids.”
“I don’t think that’s fair. I think passion trumps it all. If you find somebody that has passion for the work,and is good at it, encourage the person. Sign the person and you will make you money.”
The mother of two took a long break to attend to maternal duties, the only musical thing she did during the spell was releasing a cover song of Adele’s ‘Hello’ in 2015.
In January 2016 she released a single ‘Play na play’ featuring Angelique Kidjo off her then yet to be released album, and that was all that was heard from her until January 2017 when she released another single ‘Butterflies’ just before she finally released her album in June 2017.
