She emphasised that some male musicians who are approached by female artists for features sometimes demand sex in return.


Women in this industry are mostly disregarded because it is dominated by men. Women are prone to rejecting one another. When we truly want a feature, we receive a rejection from our male counterparts.


In an interview for TV3’s special International Women’s Day programme, she stated, “You see them feature a normal male upcoming artist, but an established female artist would like to have a feature from another male artist, and they want to be sexual, so these are some of the things that women face and have to go through in the industry.”
