Everyone loves a sob story and Yemi Alade has got one to tell. In a touching interview with #MySuperStarStory session she opened up on how she used to beg for studio time. And how money was a serious issue for her during her struggling period.
“I was slated to perform at a big concert,” the sultry singer narrated. “but a known comedian came and kicked me out. He said who knows you… I went home, got on my knees and cried to God”
The bully comedian is sure to know her by now. Her hit single ‘Johnny’ pushed her up the stardom ladder and she is still waxing strong; a far cry from the days she had to scrape for money to buy fuel for her to be recorded in the studio.
She reflected on her turning point. “God brought that song my way without telling me He was going to bless me” she said with a large smile across her face.
The songstress released her debut album, ‘King Of Queen’ in 2014.
