Nigerian singer, Yemi Alade, has finally dropped her fourth album titled ‘Woman Of Steel’.
The 15-track album, which comes after featuring in ‘Lion King’, Beyonce’s 2019 album, is a fusion of Afro-pop, Afro R&B, reggae and Afro-life.
It opens with tracks like ‘Night and Day’, ‘CIA (Criminal in Agbada)’, ‘Oh My Gosh’ remix.
Also notable is ‘Yeba’, a witty track that tables the case of a “Tunde” whose marriage proposal she rejects after her bitter experience with “Johnny” and portrays the character as “Yoruba demon” that intends making unrealistic promises to win her over.
Notable celebrities like Angelique Kidjo, Beninese-American singer; Funke Akindele, Nollywood actress; and Duncan Mighty, Reggae/R&B star, featured in the album.
Produced by Krizbeatz and Vtek, ‘Woman of Steel ‘ comes as Alade’s fourth studio album following ‘Black Magic’, ‘Mama Africa’, and ‘King of Queens’ which were released in 2014, 2016 and 2017 respectively.
Alade has achieved incredible milestones over the course of her music career that undoubtedly places her among the country’s biggest exports. What comes as a surprise is the 30-year-old’s claim that she had not always wanted to be an artiste.
Beyond landing the MTV African Music Award and the BET Award, the singer made the 2018 Forbes under 30 honoree list and was unveiled as part of the “2018 most influential people in Africa.”
