Today is Nigerian singer Yemi Alade’s birthday!
Yemi Eberechi Alade fondly called Mama Africa is a Nigerian Afropop singer.
She gained prominence after winning the Peak Talent Show in 2009 and is best known for her 2013 hit single ‘Johnny’.
The song became an international smash hit as it dominated music charts in Tanzania, Kenya, Ghana, South Africa, Liberia, Uganda, Zimbabwe, and the United Kingdom, among others.
It has been listed as one of the best songs of 2013, despite the fact that it was released towards the end of the year and without a music video.
In 2012, she signed onto the music label, Effyzzie Music Group, and released her single ‘Ghen ghen love’.
She released her debut album, King of Queens, on 2 October 2014, and then went on tour.
Yemi Alade then released her second studio album, titled “Mama Africa”, in March 2016.
Happy Birthday Yemi!
