Being Yoruba and Igbo Has Helped Me – Yemi Alade

In a chat with Sunday Scoop, Yemi Alade expressed how being from the Yoruba tribe and at the same time from Igbo has helped her. She says it's being a plus and has helped her connect easily.
Her words; “You cannot underestimate the importance and role of tribes in Nigeria as it is taken very seriously. I am very proud of my heritage as an African and I try to portray in every way that I can and everywhere I go. Being partly Yoruba and Igbo is a big plus for me as it has helped me to connect with both cultures. However, I believe that both cultures are inextricably intertwined because they share a lot of similarities.”

Yemi also stated that her first hit, Johnny was released by mistake. She said, “I was in the studio with Selebobo and we were just goofing around trying to come up with a nice sound. The first line for the song just came out playfully and I continued. I never thought that it would become a hit and if not that the song was leaked, I may never have released it.”
