‘The Gift’ album released by Beyonce last year, 2019 had a slew of African artistes on the body of work. One of the artistes is Yemi Alade, who scored slots on two songs on the projects. However, the untold story is she almost missed getting on the project by a slim chance.
Yemi Alade on Ndani TV show ‘The Juice’ revealed she had been contacted by Beyonce’s team, via email through her manager. Her manager, however thought it to be a hoax, ignoring the mail. He would only bring it up while chatting with her two months after, with only two weeks left to the project conclusion.
Fortunately she was in Las Vegas at the time, she immediately moved to Los Angeles where the recording was done. She also had to battled a strained voice issue, and had to get health care before recording.
