Yemi Alade, Nigerian Afrobeats vocalist, has come through with ‘Woman of Steel’, her long-awaited 2019 album.
The 15-track project, which comes after her feature on ‘Lion King’, Beyonce’s 2019 album, spans Afro-pop, Afro R&B, reggae and Afro-life.
It opens with a track dubbed ‘Night and Day’; features a satirical track titled ‘CIA (Criminal in Agbada)’; and includes a remix of ‘Oh My Gosh’, the vocalist’s collaborative track with Rick Ross, an American rapper and record executive.
Also notable is ‘Yeba’, a witty track that tables the case of a “Tunde” whose marriage proposal she rejects after her bitter experience with “Johnny” and portrays the character as “Yoruba demon” that intends making unrealistic promises to win her over.
Among the four artistes featured in Alade’s album are Angelique Kidjo, Beninese-American singer; Funke Akindele, Nollywood actress; and Duncan Mighty, Reggae/R&B star.
Produced by Krizbeatz and Vtek, ‘Woman of Steel ‘ comes as Alade’s fourth studio album following ‘Black Magic’, ‘Mama Africa’, and ‘King of Queens’ which were released in 2014, 2016 and 2017 respectively.
Alade has achieved incredible milestones over the course of her music career that undoubtedly places her among the country’s biggest exports. What comes as a surprise is the 30-year-old’s claim that she had not always wanted to be an artiste.
Beyond landing the MTV African Music Award and the BET Award, the singer made the 2018 Forbes under 30 honoree list and was unveiled as part of the “2018 most influential people in Africa.”
