Music fans battle over who to crown between Tiwa Savage or Tems as Afrobeat Queen
Argument about who is the queen of Afrobeat, Tiwa Savage or Tems, intensifies.
Debate over “Somebody son’s” hitmaker and “Damages” crooner as Afrobeat queen heats up.
Following Tem’s historic performance at the recently concluded BET Awards 2022, the internet has remained buzzing with her fans dubbing her the “Queen of Afrobeats.”
Alongside, a second award, “Best Collaboration” as a result of her feature on Wizkid’s “Essence” which also features Justin Bieber.
With these massive accomplishments, Twitter users praised her, with some tagging her Afrobeats Queens.
- Tiwa Savage bags new endorsement deal with the biggest brand in Nigeria
- Tems acknowledges and applauds her female colleagues in the Music Industry
While acknowledging Tem’s success, some argue that Tiwa remains the only Afrobeats Queen, noting that she paved the way for all other female artistes and what they now enjoy.

@big_jemmy said: “Tiwa Savage paved the way for these girls. She broke records and made records on her own before this streaming era and did it when it was so hard surviving in this industry as a female. She gave some artists their biggest career songs too. Hype your fave but respect TIWA SAVAGE!!

@ShegunTweets asked: “Why you go dey compare tems to tiwa savage? Is it crack? You smoke crack?”
@Kelechii6 tweeted: “Queen Of Afrobeats is Tiwa savage Congratulate Tems and move on!”
@SirDavidBent said: “Tems remains an average singer in my opinion, I don’t care about whatever awards she gets via payola or overrated hype. She will never be able to lace Tiwa Savage’s shoe laces. After Tiwa, the only other Nigerian artiste that can compete is Simi. No debates.
