Yemi Alade returns to Coke Studio
Singer Yemi Alade is back on Coke Studio Africa this year for her fourth time. Paired with French rapper of Congolese origin, Youssoupha Mabiki, the two are expected to produce an original song, among music covers and fusions produced by Ghanaian heavyweight music producer Killbeatz, who recently co-produced Ed Sheeran’s mega hit Bibia Be Yeye.
On her return to the show, Yemi Alade, who is also part of this year’s Voice Nigeria, said, “It’s always a nice fun and loving experience because I get to meet a lot of artists as well. Shout out to the crew!”
Yemi has been on a successful American tour for the last couple of months. However, it’s not all showbiz for Yemi. She also expressed her interest to support any charity and cause for children and widows.
“When it comes to education and clothing, I will do the best I can for children. I am also passionate to work with widows, as many people don’t remember them. I am always there for pep talks, seminars and ready to give my advice.”
Last year on the show, Yemi was paired with Kenyan multi-talented artist Nyashinski and produced by Nigerian music producer Chopstix. Her cover of Nyashinski’s hit song Mungu Pekee was one of the show’s Most Loved covers of all time.
She has since featured Nyashinski in her new Swahili song Nakupenda off her recently released Mama Afrique EP, which features song remixes and different versions of her mega hits.
