Entertainment to Politics to Business: 20 Global Power Women of Color to Watch in 2016

NIGERIA: Emma Nyra

Emma hit the scene in Nigeria after relocating from Texas and made her first mainstream debut featuring in Iyanya’s smash hit, Ur Waist.

She’s had her own popular radio hits including Elele and has toured the U.S., Canada, and Europe, garnering a buzz with a fan base of more than 200,000 on social media and beyond.

She was honored with the Nigerian Entertainment Award’s Most Promising Female Act, Most Fashionable Female, Most Outstanding Female Artist, and Global Leadership Award. Her YouTube and VEVO channels have generated collectively over 1,000,000 views worldwide, and she’s shared the stage with many of the top African acts, including Sarkodie, Davido, and Ice Prince, and co-headlined the African Showcase at SXSW last year. Will she be the next Tiwa Savage? This year might surely be the year of Emma.
