Sharing her opinion on the Nigerian music industry, Mz J4zzie who has lived all her life in the UK said ‘Nigeria is blessed with a lot of talents, but the industry lacks rappers, especially female rappers”

Continuing, she said her major challenge as an artiste was being accepted as a female rapper. “Most female rappers are overlooked and not taken as serious as male rappers, but I believe it’s getting better because the females in the industry are paving the way”
