We caught up Yemi Alade and she told us 5 things to expect from her sophomore album, Mama Africa. Check out what she has to say:
The album, MAMA AFRICA, is my canvas and I intend to paint Africa as I see it; in colours richer than life.
On the album, I share my stories through life: The pain, the joy, my thoughts, my failures and my success. Really, the album is like my diary.
On Mama Africa you can expect more hits and hits. The album features many of your favorite African artists, producers and musicians. It’s going to have a variety of talents on display.
MAMA AFRICA has song where I sing on topics people would rather avoid. I show my vulnerable yet strong sides and character that every african woman is known for.
On MAMA AFRICA, I’m shameless, unapologetic and proud of my african roots, culture and beliefs. From my the videos you see that I always express it. Expect more of that vibe on the album, and videos that’ll follow.
Finally, Yemi Alade adde that 2016 is about my fans. She’s all about the fans this year, and the album will show that.
