During an interview with the Sunday Scoop of The Punch Newspaper, Yemi Alade talked about collaborating with Tiwa Savage and how much female Nigerian artistes have been impressive. This is true, as Yemi Alade has gained success with her music these past few years. Meanwhile, Tiwa Savage is a brand ambassador for Star Radler, and has joined the biggest music group in the world, Universal Music Group (UMG).
“If it is the will of God (collaborating with Tiwa Savage). We, female artistes, are all doing great things and putting music out there. Being the biggest female artiste or not, I am very happy where I’m and I’m happy for other females in the industry.”
There has been an alleged beef between the two artists, but Yemi Alade seems to ignore it all. When asked about the beef, the Afro-pop singer replies: “We are here for the music; so, let’s keep our focus on the music.” Also, there was a time that a critic claimed Yemi Alade owes her success to Tiwa Savage, and Yemi Alade didn’t take this well.
“I believe so much in growth and the process. When I saw an opportunity to collaborate with Rick Ross, I grabbed it. Working with him was an amazing experience; he is an inspiration. Despite my success, I still want to tour the world, reach out to new places and make more music.”
