Yemi Eberechi Alade set a record for herself after winning the Peak Talent Show in 2009. She has set herself on the music map with her songs ever since.
Yemi Alade has so many hits to her credit, it was hard to choose which one would make Mp3bullet.ng‘s list of top 5 songs by the artist.
But, we’ve decided on the ones below to make the cut, considering the uniqueness of the songs, and Mama Africa’s wonderful collaborations:
5) Shekere (ft Angelique Kidjo)
This song is still getting all the attention, months after its release.
Yemi Alade surprised us with an awesome collaboration with Grammy Award winner, Angelique Kidjo, this year.
This was a smart collaboration on her part, as she took advantage of the recognition she’s getting from the world stage right now.
4) Don’t Jealous Me (Tekno, Lord Afrixana, Mr Eazi, and Yemi Alade)
Yemi Alade had a big win in July 2019, when she featured on this The Lion King: The Gift track.
The feature on Beyonce‘s album was a quantum leap in the right direction, garnering international fans for Yemi Alade.
Of course, this is not the first international collaboration Yemi Alade has had, but is definitely the most relevant in her career.
Even American artists consider getting featured with Beyonce (or on a project by her) as a big achievement.
Besides, how would Yemi Alade have gotten involved in Beyonce‘s upcoming Black is King visual album if it wasn’t for this song?
3) Oh my Gosh
Oh my Gosh was a hit in 2018, and nobody is arguing about that fact.
Not only does the original version have 2 million views on YouTube, the remix with Rick Ross in 2019 got 5 million views.
We also can’t overlook the fact that Yemi Alade collaborated with Rick Ross, one of America’s top rappers.
Yemi Alade has been making strategic collaborations since her music career took off.
After the original version of Kissing received great reception from her fans in 2014, she later featured Marvin on the French remix in 2015.
This got her widespread love from French speaking countries in Africa. It’s no wonder she’s called Mama Africa.
This was her very first hit single. Johnny set the precedent for most of Yemi Alade‘s songs which exist today.
Featuring top acts in the Nigerian entertainment industry, from comedians (Bovi) to actors (Alex Ekubo), the song held its own in 2014, and still does.
