Nigerian music diva and Afrobeats superstar, Yemi Alade, who has just concluded her ‘Empress’ American tour performing in cities such as New York, Washington DC, North Adams, Las Vegas and Houston, Texas, recently granted an interview on one of the most popular weekend breakfast TV shows ‘Sunday brunch’ in the United Kingdom (UK) where she spoke about her recent tour and spoke on why Nigerian music and musicians have now become the toast of the world with the likes of Burnaboy, Wizkid, among others topping charts and selling out concerts.
Yemi Alade also stressed that a healthy competition had made Nigerian artistes better musicians.
She said, “the healthy competition between Nigerian musicians has made our sound better and made us better musicians.”
The singer had also appeared on the popular Aljazerah network show ‘The social’ with Femi Oke in Washington, where she spoke about the importance of female representation in the entertainment industry and why it’s very important that young female musicians aspire for greatness.
She, in the last 12 months, released her album ‘Empress’ and an EP titled ‘Queen don come’ is currently in the UK where she will be performing at the first-ever ‘Earthshot’ prize awards at the Alexandra palace alongside Ed Sheehan, Coldplay and Shawn Mendez among others.
The exclusive and globally televised event is put together by the Royal foundation spearheaded by Prince William of the English royal family and recognises inventive solutions to the environmental problems facing the planet.
