TV watchers seem to love a juicy rivalry story, and Prime Video is offering one up Nigeria-style. Based on a story of an Afrobeats star determined to connive her way to the top, “SHE Must Be Obeyed” provides a fictionalized account of the supposed intrigue and backbiting behind Nigeria’s music industry.    Whether manufactured for publicity or based on genuine tension, competitiveness between artists often garners significant media attention and fan interest. ‘Stan’ wars have been a driving force on social media for the past decade, instigating streaming battles, hashtag wars, and fan edits.
