She said: “The way I dress, I like being very comfortable and real with my fans. I am an African woman, which is why when you see me in some videos, I use calabash as bra and other times I wear very short things, not because I am trying to be super sexy, I am only presenting myself the way I am to my fans.”
The Tangerine singer is sure carving herself a name in the Nigerian entertainment industry with her music and overall style.
In a recent chat with Hip TV, she laughed off comparisons with Mavin records superstar Tiwa Savage.
Recall that in 2015 she forayed into fashion with the launch of her personal fashion design.
Speaking to Punch on this, she added that she is currently talking to a partner so as to set up a shoe line.
She said: “I am currently talking to someone for a shoe-line, and talking to other people for other business opportunities. I am everywhere. I must use my youth well.
“I have a business partner who will take care of my other businesses because she understands my work.
“I also went into fashion because of my love for African fashion. I discovered that whenever I go to other African countries to perform, they usually try to replicate my style, so I decided to make something for them and myself as well. The collection is about my personality, my style, and because my style is different, we have decided to make it available to my fans. We also made it in form of jewellery so that everybody can wear it.”
Yemi Alade is a multi award-winning Afro Pop singer. Her new album Mama Africa is set for a 2016 release and many, fans and critics alike, cannot wait for its release.
