Picking up from the release of her acclaimed third studio album “Black Magic” in December 2017 following the enormous success of her “Mama Afrique” EP and previous albums including: “Mama Africa: The Diary of an African Woman” and “King of Queens,” Yemi Alade is currently enjoying the success of her latest banger “Go Down” as she plans to embark on her European tour starting this April.
She is undisputedly Africa’s most accomplished Female singer this decade. In 2017, she made history by being the only top African act who released an album and EP in the same year.

Produced by Philkeyz off Yemi’s deluxe edition of her third studio album “Black Magic” set for release in 2018: “Go Down” is groovy and has a touch of 90s R&B—making it one of Yemi’s most unique new classics. The music video boasts colorful visuals capturing Yemi and her dance crew at their best, getting down to the certified dance song. She enlists leading cinematographer Paul Gambit for the video of the single that comes after a previous hit release: “Single & Searching” featuring Falz.
'Even with a slowed down melody, @yemialadee still manages to bring the goods with a vivacious dance choreography, and of course with lots of intoxicating moves and bright outfits, in “Go Down.”' 🎥🎶 @GoodMoMusic https://t.co/rfmqOtI2O1

The two-time MTV Africa Music Awards Best Female Act asserts that she will continue to focus her efforts across Africa with East Africa treated as a key market. She says: “This is my second home and I appreciate all the love that I get from my East Africa fans. I mean what else can I show for it? I know speak Swahili! From Sauti Sol, Nyashinski to Vanessa Mdee and many other artistes, I have found a lot of inspiration and lessons from my peers,” adding, “I am looking forward to coming back soon for more live performances.”
