The Brown Barbie from West Africa Yemi Alade is expected in town. Yemi Alade will be performing at the Choma na Ngoma event to be held on 31st May, 2018 at the KICC. After performing in Kenya during the 21st edition of the Koroga Festival, Yemi aka Mama Africa left the country wishing she would stay and enjoy more.
Kenyans are one of Yemi’s most enkindled fans. Her songs Johnny, Black Magic, Mama Africa and Africa took the Kenyan airwaves by storm and still rock the local channels. She has managed to collaborate with the likes of Nyashinsky and Sauti Sol and says that her dream is to work with more Kenyan artistes. Ever since 2009 Yemi Alade’s musical career took a positive turn following her win at The Peak Talent Show.
The Choma na Ngoma festival will also feature Kenyan artistes including King Kaka, Sauti Sol, Willy Paul, The Kansoul and Femi Gitu among others. The event is officially sponsored by Radio Maisha and tickets will go for Ksh.1000 regular and Kshs.3000 VIP. Radio Maisha which is under the Standard Media Group will also be using this event to celebrate the Tuko Mbele Pamoja success since coming into the airwaves.
The Yoruba-Igbo girl is considered one of the most talented and resilient artistes that Africa can brag of. If you are ready, let’s meet at the show.
