Yemi Alade Review and Bio


Yemi Alade has really good music. She has a very thick accent so it was kind of a challenge to understand what she was saying but after a couple times of listening to her it became easier. She for sure is a great artist. I love her fashion which is just a plus to her music. Her music is something I could say I would listen to because she appeals to my taste in music. The way she dances is fun and I could say a little out there but she does not go so far that you would think that she was promiscuous. She does push lines that I did not see other African woman artist push. And that is why I like her because she seems as if she is not afraid of being criticized by what she does.  My by far favorite one by her is “Johnny” because of the upbeat sound she has and I love the way she is dancing in the video. She makes me what to get up and dance with her. She in my opinion shows women not to be afraid and have fun. Her style of dress is somewhat different from what I am used to seeing African woman artist wear. She wears more reviling clothes and she also wears odd things like crazy stripes or very loud colors. I just love how in her music when I hear it just seems as if she is so carefree in what she does. The best thing about her music are the beats. The drumming and reggae feel she gives off makes it easy for me to want to continue to listen to her.
