Yemi Eberechi Alade’s birthday is on 13th March 1989.
She is a famous Nigerian Afropop singer and songwriter. She gained prominence after winning the Peak Talent Show in 2009, and is best known for her hit single “Johnny”.
She is a beauty with a fashion sense you could borrow a bit from. Anything about the African Kulture couture can be found in her style. So we appreciate her dearly.
Her father is a police commissioner of Yoruba descent while her mother is of Igbo descent, resulting in her being referred to as the Yoruba-Igbo girl.
Alade has a debut studio album called King of Queens which was released on October 2, 2014, by Effyzzie Music Group. She collaborated with producers such as Selebobo, Sizzle Pro, Shady Bizniz, Philkeyz, Young D, GospelOnDeBeatz, DIL, OJB Jezreel, Mr Chidoo, Fliptyce, EL Mcee and Beat Nation.
The album was preceded by three singles: “Johnny”, “Tangerine” and “Kissing”. It features guest appearances and skits from Bovi, R2Bees, Phyno, Chidinma, DIL, Selebobo and Diamond Platnumz. Alade promoted the album by touring several African countries, including Ghana, Kenya and South Africa.
Alade’s second studio album Mama Africa was released on March 25, 2016, by Effyzzie Music Group. It features guest appearances from P-Square, Sarkodie, Sauti Sol, Flavour N’abania, Rotimi Keys, DJ Arafat and Selebobo.
It was supported by six singles: “Na Gode”, “Do As I Do”, “Ferrari”, “Kom Kom”, “Africa” and “Tumbum”. Mama Africa was made available for pre-order on iTunes a week before its official release. Alade announced that proceeds from the sale of the album will go to the Feed a Child charity initiative. The deluxe edition of the album was released on April 6, 2016, and features guest vocals from South African musicians Bucie and AKA.
In July 2019, Alade became the first African female artist to reach one million subscribers on YouTube. She was featured on “Don’t Jealous Me”, a track from Beyoncé’s soundtrack album The Lion King: The Gift. She appeared on the track alongside Mr Eazi and Tekno.
Cheers to Yemi Alade. This is why we love you!
