Africa’s top female artiste, Yemi Alade and multiple award-winning Kenyan band Sauti Sol have released the video for the song, Africa.
Seeing two music behemoth from different countries come together to sing about their continent is awe inspiring and this ‘Africa’ song did not disappoint.
Yemi Alade has a carved a niche for herself in the African entertainment industry. She is one of the most hardworking female artistes out there right now.
Refusing to settle for just being a ‘Nigerian artiste’, she has collaborated with artistes from other African countries to ensure that Africans do not miss out on the goodness that is her music.
She also went as far as releasing the Swahili version of her song, Nagode. It was originally sung in Nigerian pidgin with bits in Ibo and Yoruba, both Nigerian languages.
She recently released her fashion brand, H.O.T (House of Tangerine) in collaboration with DNA of Iconic Invanity at the African Fashion Week in Lagos. (AFWN2016).
The hardworking artiste was also made a brand ambassador of the event. This follows recent recognition from Grammy of her costume in the hit song, ‘Johnny’ which is now being displayed in the Grammy Museum.
The song ‘Africa’ is a hit off her current album titled “Mama Africa: The Diary of an African Woman”
The Africa Video was shot by Rebel Movement in Nigeria, Kenya, United Kingdom and the United States of America. The song was produced by Beats By Emzo and the music video directed by Ovie Etseyatse.
The Africa video provokes feelings of solidarity for the motherland as Yemi Alade and Sauti Sol sing about the greatness of the continent.
