In an obvious act of desperation to save her dwindling music career, Lagos singer, Yemi Alade has committed the "unthinkable blunder" by dressing up as his Royal Majesty the Oba of Benin for her new video OGA.
This week the singer released a photograph for her upcoming video showing her dressed like the Oba of Benin. The picture has gone viral and instead of the projected hype, Yemi Alade has turned herself into public enemy number one across most parts of Nigeria and the Nigerian diaspora. Pinning her hopes of a successful musical comeback on presenting such a "shock value" has truly backfired big-time.
The people of Benin have reacted with great anger to the picture and the singer must now realize that if she goes ahead with this video "it will be career funeral rather than a comeback". Not even in Hollywood has this mess of a stunt being practiced.
Yemi Alade is not from Benin- city so the reason behind this bad and distasteful stunt has left everyone baffled. Any man in this world has not come close to a stunt like this in african history so it's very hard to digest that a woman would try it.
Remember recently how the Benins have suffered a lot in the world press, being called the capital of human trafficking, did anyone see Yemi Alade trying to help in any way or form. Some have said perhaps seeing pictures of another singer Davido with our monarchy has got her jealous.
We at Edo connect are suggesting Yemi Alade go home and ask your parents about the Benins. Stupid child!
Several Edo personalities have come out to condemn the singer. see below
