Yemi Alade chastises Nigerians for picking a side in the Afrobeats fight

Popular Yemi Alade, a Nigerian Afropop singer-songwriter, has lamented the nation’s growing economic suffering. She bemoaned the bad weather and overall expense of life, as well as the increases in fuel pump and electricity charges.

The “Johnny” crooner chastised certain Nigerians for taking sides in the celebrity social media feud rather than pressing the government to provide better living circumstances.

Writing on her X handle, Alade said:

Electricity tariffs and fuel are at a 400% increase. Naira to $ is dancing alanta. The weather is unbearably hot.

“People are busy being wicked to each other with daily increases in prices. Salaries have not been increased. Afrobeat artists are making the mess, and you’re picking sides instead of facing our government.”

Arguably, one of the best female musicians in the nation is Alade.

With the release of her 2014 hit, “Johnny,” she rose to prominence.

It’s well known that Yemi Alade performs her songs in French, Yoruba, and English. Her music, which combines pop, R&B, dancehall, highlife, and afro has influenced several African nations.

In both 2015 and 2016, she took home the Best Female MTV Africa Music Award (MAMA).
