Yemi Alade’s comment on Wizkid and Davido that everybody is talking about!
Yemi Alade doesn’t believe there’s a number one artiste in Nigeria. She has an interesting view as she revealed this during a recent interview. In her exact word:
“What I’ve done with the limelight and a career like mine that keeps you vulnerable to everyone’s opinion, I just make sure my opinion is paramount and number one.”
She went further to speak about the idea of a number one artiste in Africa and gave an unpopular opinion contrary to that of the world’s that there is indeed no number one artiste as all artiste:
“There is no number one and that is what makes the Nigerian music industry stay afloat because everybody is trying to be number one. The top five artistes in Africa can shut down the same shows with the same capacity. The same capacity Wizkid holds down in Africa I can hold down in Africa. The same capacity Davido holds down in Africa, I hold it down, same venues and we all shut it down! So there is no number one. That’s the truth but not everyone will agree to that but that’s not my business”
