Artistes should give value to fans during performances! Yemi Alade Calls-Out Other Artistes

Known for her praised live performances, which features her Ova Sabi band and dancers; Yemi Alade is force on stage. Speaking to the Nigerian Tribune as she kicks off the USA leg of her “Mama Africa World Tour”, the self proclaimed “King of Queens” seems to have called-out her male and female colleagues for failure to deliver strong performances on stage.

When she was asked; “You are an energetic performer who would rather do live band than perform to CDs. Is this to prove that you are, indeed a better and all rounded artiste?”

The award-winning singer replied;

“Performing live is the proper and normal thing for artistes to do. International artistes do this, it is not to prove anything, it is just to give fans the best. They pay to come and get a performance, if they wanted to listen to my CD, they might as well stream or buy the music and listen to it in the comfort of their homes. When people dress up and pay to come watch you, be respectful and try to put out a good outing by all means necessary. I agree there are some scenarios that you have no other option than to perform without a band, if they arise, artistes should either decline to perform or perform over a performance track, not over the actual song. The world is watching Africa, so we must rise to the occasion.”
