Abeg Yemi, Make We Breathe!
Queen of slay. Ruler of dance moves. Goddess of vocals. Beat killer. Heart stealer. Breath taker. Yemi Alade, oooo!
Over 3 million YouTube viewers still don’t know where her Johnny is, and it’s 2017.
Young men are wondering how to buy her a Ferrari. Young women are shook by her fierce Afrocentric style and citizens of the entire world are overwhelmed by the force of her music.
Remember last season when she almost made Kenya’s Nyashinksi cry with her perfect cover of his comeback hit, Mungu Pekee? (Well, he looked speechless and lost in wonderment, but don’t tell him about the crying thing).
Kenyans have claimed her, Nigerians have held on to her and Twitter wars have ensued, but Yemi Eberechi Alade, ‘Ghen Ghen Babe’ and bi-tribal ‘Yoruba-Ibo Girl’ will not stand down. She keeps us on the edge of our seats with new music and collabos that span the continent.
At Coke Studio Africa, she pretty much did not come to play with any folk. She came to slay, which she did without a hitch.
This season, expect African high fashion. Look forward to impossibly glam face-beats. Hold your breath for hair that defies gravity and science.
You will experience African Girl Magic pouring like a tsunami from wherever it is that you’ll be watching Season 5.
Hold on to your seats for the firebrand that is Yemi Alade.
