A Los Angeles-based rapper has everybody talking about her “Nigerian pussy” song today. The song and L.A.-shot video from Princess Vitarah are blowing up on social media one day since its drop.

And it’s incredibly catchy, like the diasporic offshoot of Vitarah’s dirty rap predecessors Lil’ Kim, Trina and of course Khia.

Update March 5, 2016: The original "Nigerian Pussy" video was taken down by YouTube. It reached 120,000 before it was flagged as spam. The following video was re-uploaded by Princess Vitarah on March 3.

Vitarah's already making fans out of some of Nigeria’s biggest artists, like Olamide, who she tweets is one of her favorite rappers.

Some people have no words. Others are loving every bit of it.

Vitarah also adds a new chapter to the age-old Nigeria vs. Ghana beef. As Twitter user @pappillo22 points out, “It's not even bout jollof rice anymore, now it's bout pussy.”

These Women Are Breaking Boundaries In Nigeria's Creative Spaces

We speak to five women about their work and contributions to Nigerian society & creative spaces, despite their patriarchal nature.

"African women in general need to know that it's ok for them to be the way they are–to see the way they are as a strength, and to be liberated from fear and from silence" —Wangarĩ Muta Maathai

These words prompt one to think about how terrible a job the media does in sharing the stories of African women. As journalists, our work is based on telling African stories, and the gap of female stories is a very apparent one that needs filling. It's important to have an environment that appreciates fearless and unapologetic women chasing their dreams and breaking the boundaries before them.

We caught up with Toketemu Ohwovoriole, a multimedia storyteller & journalist; Solis, a singer, songwriter, poet, & muse; Lauretta Yemoja, a beauty artist and rapper/singer; Tiwa Pearl, a dancer and creative; and Oyinkansola Dada, an art curator and founder of art gallery Polartics, to talk about their careers.
