ABOUT: YEMI ALADE
Born in Abia State to business woman, “Helen Alade” [Nee Uzoma] and police officer, “James Alade”, fast-rising Nigerian Pop sensation “Yemi Eberechi Alade” was the fifth of seven siblings in a household that was filled with music from day one.
“Yemi” – whose dual heritage of South-East Nigeria and South-West Nigeria earned her the moniker of “that Yoruba-Ibo girl” – grew up listening to popular music of the late eighties and early nineties and would showcase her singing and dancing dexterities as a child in several party and social competitions. She began singing in her Church choir at the tender age of twelve and was soon known to be able to make melodies from everyday conversations – in her own words, “I’ve practically lived my life on stage”.
“Yemi” grew up in several Nigerian cities as a kid owing to her father’s job commitments and was educated at Saint Saviors’ British Primary School in Lagos before proceeding to Victory Grammar School, Lagos and then to the University Of Lagos where she majored and graduated with a Bachelors degree in Geography in 2010.
Under the supervision of “Bayo Omisore” [2Face, Lami], “Yemi” began making music professionally in 2005 and would go on to win the maiden edition of the “Peak Talent Show” in 2009. Her debut single “Fimisile” which featured “eLDee” was released in 2010 and peaked remarkably with over ten thousand hits on YouTube in barely a month and features on several taste makers such as Bella Naija, Jaguda and NotJustOK among others.
Currently hard at work on her yet to be titled debut album, she continues to make her mark in the African music industry – performing on hundreds of stages across Nigeria and featuring on massive singles with major artists such as “Dipp”, “Ice Prince“, “eLDee”, “M.I”, “Sauce Kid”, “Shank”, “Sir Shina Peters“, “Waje“, “Wizkid” and “Yemi Sax” to mention a few. Her extensive discography has also seen her working with veteran and burgeoning music producers like “OJB Jezreel”, “eLDee”, “E. Kelly”, “IBK”, “MajorOne”, “SizzlePro”, Red Bull Music Academy alumni “DJ Klem”, “Bigfoot”, “FlipTyce” and World renowned South African producer “Garth”.
“Yemi Alade” is currently signed to “Effyzzie Music Group“…
