Omawumi thinks it is unfair for record labels to discriminate against women on grounds that careers are often cut short following marriage. Speaking in a recent interview, the mum of two who recently dropped her third studio album ‘Timeless’, cited her career as an example and urged record labels to encourage female artists.She feels that the stance taken by the record labels against maternity mothers is unfair because passion should rather be the criterion for judging ability of women and not the risk of whether they might get married in the future or not. She used herself as an example that proves that women can go on maternity leave but still come back to the music scene to make an impact.The ‘If You Ask Me’ singer took a break from the spotlight to give birth to her son, causing fans to worry about her long absence from the spotlight. However, she returned in 2015 with her fantastic cover of Adele’s global hit song ‘Hello’. Despite the reception of the track, two years passed before she was allowed to release her next studio album and this might have been what provoked her to speak out.Photo Credit: Getty
