My Hit Song ‘Johnny’ Was Released By Mistake – Yemi Alade


The MAMA Africa crooner, in another meeting with Sunday Scoop, uncovered that her hit track Johnny, which set hearts dashing, body moving and acknowledgment expanding, was really dropped by mixtape.

As indicated by Miss Alade, if the melody had not first been released on the web, she may never have dropped it.

In her words:

“I was in the studio with Selebobo and we were just goofing around trying to come up with a nice sound. The first line for the song just came out playfully and I continued. I never thought that it would become a hit and if not that the song was leaked, I may never have released it.”

Miss Alade, also talked about her heritage, saying being Igbo and Yoruba, is of great advantage to her.

“You cannot underestimate the importance and role of tribes in Nigeria as it is taken very seriously. I am very proud of my heritage as an African and I try to portray in every way that I can and everywhere I go.

Being partly Yoruba and Igbo is a big plus for me as it has helped me to connect with both cultures. However, I believe that both cultures are inextricably intertwined because they share a lot of similarities,” she said.
