Spotify Equal Africa Features Yemi Alade on Its Playlist
Yemi Alade, a multi-talented Nigerian performer, was highlighted as part of Spotify's Equal Africa initiative in 2023.
The most recent addition to the list of renowned musicians on the Equal Africa playlist is the top female Afro-Pop performer in Africa.
The goal of the Spotify Equal Africa initiative is to provide female artists with the tools and support they need to advance their careers and gain access to a global audience through various playlists. Additionally, the recipients get resources and off-platform coaching to help them advance their musical careers even more.
Expressing delight on the program, Alade said: “It’s a great time to be alive; female artists have quadrupled in number compared to a decade ago." The only thing we ask now in this male-dominated industry is for equal opportunity. "Equal opportunities to be seen and for our talents to be showcased because in the "universe of music," there is no gender, only potential, creativity, and pure magic.”
On her part, Spotify’s head of music for Sub-Saharan Africa, Phiona Okumu, said: “Yemi is such a talented artist who has already carved out a solid place in the music industry." "Spotify is looking forward to showcasing her talent to an even wider audience and working with her to further map out her success.”
Alade is no stranger to the spotlight. With four albums, an EP, and hit singles such as Johnny, Shekere, Africa, Oh my gosh, and Bum Bum under her belt, she is part of the Afro-Pop elite. Outside of her music, Alade is an actress and a United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Goodwill Ambassador who operates her own charity, the James and Helen Pathway Foundation.
