It’s no longer news that Nigeria’s biggest female artists Tiwa Savage and Yemi Alade are not really friends and are always compared in the entertainment industry.
In a series of tweets on Friday, after Tiwa Savage released her newest album “ Celia”, fans of Yemi Alade claimed the singer has gone on a blocking spree as they accuse Tiwa of blocking them on her Twitter page.
Yemi and Tiwa soon became a trending topic on Twitter as fans of both artists compares their albums sales, beauty, sold-out concerts and YouTube views. Tiwa Savage’s fans also claims Nigerians don’t promote and support female artist’s music the way the way they support their male artists.

DJ Cuppy dropped an album this year and it competed with Burna Boy and Fireboy's album on the trend table.
Zlatan and Kizz Daniel both dropped an Album this year and barely anyone noticed them
Tiwa Savage should go and work harder and stop blocking Yemi Alade's fans on Twitter. https://t.co/CKQcHK3zP1

Time Tiwa should have spent improving her creativity & organizing her PR, she spent it on Twitter blocking tweeps who say Yemi Alade is better & blaming women for not supporting her.
Now you want to blame men & the "patriarchy" for her terrible album reception. Mtcheew FOH.

If you shout “Yemi Alade” 3x in the mirror at 3am, Tiwa Savage will appear to you and block you.
