Nigerians are reacting to the video of three female radio presenters mocking singers, Yemi Alade and Tiwa Savage.
The video was shared by Tiwa on her social media page, as she noted that the women who should be helping female artists and urging them to support each other are the ones abusing them.
In the video, the women were heard saying that Tiwa cannot write her songs, but she becomes popular from singing other people’s songs.
Nigerians have taken to the popular micro-blogging platform, Twitter, to share their views about the video.
A set of people noted that many people are guilty of what the presenters were caught doing.
Lol some of you that are bashing the OAPs that were caught abusing and hating on Tiwa Savage on radio are also guilty of what they did but there are no mics where you have carried out your gossip and slander.

Another set of people said that the ‘women supporting women’ mantra is a farce.
MI & Vector are dissing each other which is part of Rap Culture while Women were Gossiping Tiwa Savage with Hate. It's Unintelligent to compare the 2 Scenarios. https://t.co/bY4u40VoJh

Some people explained that the case of the presenters does not mean that women hate themselves.
Correction number 1: Tiwa Savage is the biggest Nigerian female musician.
Number 2: That video does not prove that "Women hate women". Men stab and shoot other men to death, Tell terrible lies @ work against other men (like one fool did to me last week). It's not a gender thing. https://t.co/3gG29OhQRZ
