No, Number One Singer in Nigeria, I Can Pull As Many crowds As Davido and Wizkid – Yemi Alade Boast
A pop star, Yemi Alade, has said that she is operating on the same level as David and Ayo Wizkid.
She made the statement while speaking in an interview with Hot FM, 98.3
She said, “I respect everybody. We all inspire each other in this industry. There is actually no number one because your top five artistes in Nigeria that are the biggest in Africa can shut down the exact same capacity.

“The same capacity Wizkid holds down in Africa, I hold it down. The same capacity Davido holds down in Africa, I hold it down. The same venues, we all shut it down.
“So there is no number one, and that is the truth, but not everybody will agree to that. People will say, ‘Yemi, shut up.’ But that is the truth. Why don’t we go and ask the promoters, the people who know the numbers?”
The ‘Johnny’ singer made emphasis on her tour which had a large turnout saying, “I just concluded my 13-city European tour and the turnout was amazing.
“I have pretty much been touring for over three years. It’s a big privilege for me.
“For me now, I think it is beyond the music, I think people also come out for what I stand for, the fact that I stand for Africa unapologetically and originally as I can,” she said.
