"I am one of those women", she continued.

"I stand with those women, and with those men, equally outraged by discrimination, who support us in heart and mind". I hope this win will inspire the younger generation to never stop believing in their dreams and to work hard in trying to achieve their goals. "A world in which caring people - male as well as female - will no longer tolerate gender inequality".

"I'm sick, I'm repulsed, I'm infuriated by the double standards that continue to treat women as second-class citizens", she continued.

She said: "It's such a waste of all the cultures and all the music to only listen to one kind of music".

She is fresh from winning prestigious prizes at the MTV Video Music Awards in August - artist of the year and video of the year - after her album "Camila" reached the top of USA charts in January.

Ms. Ofilia wrote on Instagram for their fans: "Big-Ri and I are so so so grateful!"
