Nigerian songstress, Yemi Alade who just put out her “Woman Of Steel” album, was on The Juice show on NdaniTV.
She talked about her career. From winning The Peak Talent Show in 2009 to her break out single Johnny in 2014. Her Parents and their initial reaction on her decision to pursue music.
But the highlight of the interview was her response when asked if she would ever collaborate with Tiwa Savage. She stated she doesn’t think it would ever happen, due to the opposition and tension fans and critics steer up between both acts, a collaboration might never work out.
She said, “It’s unfortunate that with the troubles that people keep steering in our ways, it probably will never allow us to ever have a collaboration, because you’re not sure the outcome would even be positive or be over run by negative things and all the fights. When we do music, we do it so people can be happy, so when we do a song together, what are we fueling? What are we encouraging? That’s the most important question”.
