Mama Africa crooner, Yemi Alade is tired of feeling underrated and she didn’t mince words in letting this known in her recent interview with Hot FM.
The award winning songstress shared her thought on the rivalry that is often seen amongst musicians and what the competition actually represents.
“We are all trying to be number one, but the truth is, there is no number one”, she stated citing that the reason why everyone appears to be in a competition is because every artiste is trying to stay afloat. She went on to explain that (almost) every A-list African artiste has the ability to replicate the achievement of their contemporaries, therefore no one should be considered superior.
Furthermore, Yemi pointed out that she has the capacity to shut down the same venues that Africa’s revered number one’s (Wizkid and Davido) have shut down. She said:
“The same capacity Wizkid holds down in Africa, I hold it down. The same capacity Davido holds down in Africa, I hold it down – the same venues, we all shut it down, so there is no number one. Why don’t we go ask the promoters, the people who know the numbers?”, she cited – conveying an idea that she considers herself underrated.
