Drawing inspiration from her cultural roots and the lyrical arrangements of Kendrick Lamar, Qing Madi brings a fresh and innovative sound to the music industry, seamlessly blending Afrobeats, Pop, Soul, and R&B. Joining the ranks of other accomplished Nigerian artists such as Tiwa Savage, Ayra Starr, Asa, and FAVE, Qing Madi becomes part of EQUAL Africa, a program dedicated to spotlighting and amplifying the voices of talented female artists who are making waves in the industry. Through this initiative, their music reaches a global audience, expanding their reach and impact.
Expressing pride in this collaboration, Spotify’s Head of Music for Sub-Saharan Africa, Phiona Okumu, states, “We are delighted to welcome Qing Madi to the EQUAL program and look forward to witnessing her continued growth and success. By shining a spotlight on talents like hers, we hope to inspire a new generation of creators.”
Qing Madi, recognizing the challenges faced by women in the male-dominated industry, expresses her gratitude for being part of the EQUAL program, which provides her with a platform to gain global visibility and expand her fanbase. As more young female stars, such as Ayra Starr, FAVE, Ria Sean, and Bloody Civilian, break into the mainstream, Qing Madi is poised to become the next young female talent to captivate a larger audience. With the support of Spotify’s EQUAL Africa Program, her musical aspirations are set to soar to new heights.
