Five For Friday: Yemi Alade

Deezer informed me that Yemi Alade (Ah-la-day) had a new single out today, "Begging," so I thought I’d feature her. She’s an Afropop singer from Nigeria who sings in English, Igbo, Yoruba, Pidgin, French, Portuguese, and Swahili, meaning most of the time I don’t understand what she’s saying, but I can pick up the meaning based on the videos.

I wrote a post about four years ago for Writers Workshop where I was talking about my name, and how my aunts all call me Johnny (even to this day). I went to YouTube to find the song "Oh Johnny. Oh Johnny, Oh!" and among the songs it found was Yemi’s "Johnny." I listened, I liked…

  1. Johnny
  2. Oh My Gosh
  3. Dancina
  4. Tumbum
  5. Begging

Yemi Alade, your Five For Friday, July 22, 2022.
