It’s been a while, and I missed you guys a lot. I just needed to take a break to focus on midterms, papers, and work on me, so me can better for you. Did you guys even notice I was gone? I’ll take it personally if you didn’t oooo. Any-hoo, I decided to come back with something light before we delve into the deep stuff (I know that’s what you guys enjoy). I have so much to gist you about the amazing Christian conference I attended last weekend, but that’s for later. I wrote a little bit about it in this POST.
Tell me how I never paid attention to Yemi Alade, I mean I knew she had been in the music industry for a while, and I admired her style, but I never really cared for her music. I only ever liked this romantic song from her, Kissing (video below). That is all in the past now, as I have decided that Yemi Alade is truly a King of Queens!!!! I mean this lady exudes beauty, style, confidence, talent and culture.I watched all her music videos on Friday, and noticed that each one had a beautiful story line, and her outfits made me appreciate my culture more.
To me, Yemi Alade is a star, and if you don’t agree with me, let me know why. I know a lot of people criticize her lyrics, but can we all agree that most of the Nigerian audience focus on the beat of a song, and not the lyrics (I’m different though). Apart from that, I love how she emphasizes the beauty of Africa and its people in her music through places,fashion, hairstyles, and languages. She is also versatile, and has collaborated with different international artists, bringing Africa to the world. So, I bring you my favorite music videos of Yemi, hope you enjoy.
This girl got vocals, and she flaunts them in this song with South African band, Mi Casa.
I was so hyped to see Yemi perform with jennifer Hudson and other international stars in this Shell campaign. She snatched my edges off when she sang in Yoruba too #Yorubatotheworld.
She gave me some Janelle Monae vibes in this video with Flavour!
