‘Why It Took 2 Years To Release My Sophomore Album’ – Yemi Alade
Multiple award winning songstress, Yemi Alade has released the much anticipated sophomore album christened ‘Mama Africa’.
In a chat with ERAVE, the talented singer who shot into prominence after winning the Peak Talent Show in 2009 opened up on why she took time to release her much awaited second album. “I was bothered about the number of years between my first and second album. There are different artistes who decide to drop albums when they feel its due. There are some others who drop two albums at a time while there are others who are yet to even drop a mixtape.”
“I decided I wouldn’t rush into dropping an album my fans wouldn’t love to listen to. That was why I took my time to record songs that sounds more African,” Yemi squealed.
On whether she is under pressure to conquer Africa after becoming a household name in Nigeria, she disclosed that she is not under any form of pressure whatsoever. “The most important thing is to make good music and deliver what every African would be proud to associate with. I love challenges and I try to push myself beyond my comfort zones. Doing that consistently has made music a lot more fun for me and I take things a step after another.”
You will recall that Yemi Alade recently released the visuals for the remix of her single ‘Kissing’ featuring Project Fame’s Jeff. Her debut album, ‘King of Queens’ was released in 2014.
