Most people do not know that Johnny Crooner Yemi Alade almost quit music ‘many, many times.’ But her perseverance and hard work finally paid off as she is now one of the most recognised female entertainers on the continent. Alade also listed those she admires in the Nigerian music industry in a recent interview with NET.
“Ohh yeah, many times, many times I wanted to take a job, many times I wanted to take a white collar job that will take me 24/7 everyday in a week. There were times I just wanted to stop this music of course.”
Asked who she admired in the entertainment industry, she answered: “I definitely admire Tiwa Savage and Cynthia Morgan. For the male singers, P-Square is top on my list. I also admire Don Jazzy for not stopping even when the world thought it was over for him. I also admire Banky W because of what he stands for musically in Nigeria.”
