In March 2016, Nigerian rapper
Within 24 hours of its release, the music video had 12,000 views.
The simplicity of the song and the subject matter made it very easy to stick in the minds of whoever listened to it.
Vitarah followed up the success of 'Nigerian Pussy' with 'Tell Your Husband' and the recent 'Titties' which sees her praising the allure of her breasts. The female rapper based in Los Angeles is more than comfortable in talking explicitly about sex.
In Nigeria, the boys can spit raw lines but the few female rappers circle around how dope they and lightly touch on their sex appeal. And this reflects what goes on a larger scale in the society when men talk the nasty talk and women just blush and smile. Well, that is starting to change.
Princess Vitarah goes head in on topics that chicks wouldn't be caught dead talking about in public before. "Lick it, lick it, lick it, lick it, lick it, lick it up. Pussy soaking wet you need to put it in a cup" isn't exactly what you expect a lady to say but Vitarah said it and lots of Nigerian women raise their fists to it.
The impact of Dear Oloni and My Hoe Stories show that Nigerian women have snatched the narrative on sex talk and raunchy convos especially online.
This openness and honesty on sex are parallel to the rise of feminism and women's rights in the country. Women are moving from being the passive partner to the dominant one.
Of course, it's not all hurray for the fairer sex. There are a lot of women who still feel they can't talk publicly about sex because they do not want to be perceived as sluts.
The important thing is that the conversation has started and one day women talking about sex will not be considered a big deal.
