Greatest Songs by Women, for Women

On a lighter and more entertaining note… Ladies, if you’re looking for something to make you feel like the special gem that you are, this one’s for you. I should note first that there are countless songs written about women. Whether it’s about falling in love, getting heart-broken or looking for a one-night stand, people have found inspiration for great music through their experiences with women.

While in the office, we thought hard for songs by Kenyan artists, more specifically male artists, that empower women. That list was not long, which was surprising… Do Kenyan male artists really empower women through their music?

Anyway, here are the 8 Greatest songs by women or for women…
