Don’t Believe Everything You Read About Me-Singer Yemi Alade

Yemi Alade
Yemi Alade was in Kenya recently during the recording of the popular show Coke Studio and she was asked a number of questions. One question she never escaped was her alleged beef with Tiwa Savage, one controversy that has refused to leave her. She insists that she has no beef with Tiwa.

Yemi once belonged to a girl group called Naughty Spice “When I was in high school we formed a group of four girls called Naughty Spice and I was called Ginger Spice. Unfortunately, the group had to break after we were all admitted to different universities. It gave me the push to the right direction of where I wanted to go. One of the girls in the group is the one who went and lined up and filled a form for me to go and compete in a local talent competition which I won.”

She talked about sharing  the stage with American musician Jennifer Hudson. “It was such a privilege for Shell to pick me to represent Africa alongside other artistes from different countries who included Jennifer Hudson from US to produce one track.”

She added “ So many things have been said about me even as an artiste and fellow celebrities as well, but I will take this opportunity to advise them. If you haven’t spoken to someone one on one and they haven’t told you something, don’t listen to them. Don’t believe everything you hear or see if you haven’t talked to the person. I am who I am.”

To the girl child, she has this to say “You are beautiful no matter what people say. The challenges and shortcomings that you might face today, remember they were there even when our mothers were young girls and it is important for us to raise above the challenges. Do not focus on the challenge, when you see the challenge rise above it and from there you will build a sky scrapper, don’t settle on a challenge find a solution.”
