I’ve Stopped Listening To Sarkodie’s Songs – Yemi Alade

Nigerian artiste Yemi Alade has stopped listening to Sarkodie’s songs because he failed to avail himself for a feature on her song.

Yemi told Bola Ray on Starr FM on Wednesday, 23rd November, 2017 that she felt disrespected when Sarkodie refused to show up at a meeting they agreed to have in the USA, UK and South Africa.

“I’ve really tried my best to really not go into details but the long and short on why I don’t want to dwell on this is that is super unfair, unprofessional and unkind for international acts or even artistes to have a dealing with anybody and after agreeing to certain things, you don’t come through at all.. I can count three different countries and three different venues where my team and I had an agreement with the artiste (Sarkodie) in particular and he didn’t come through,” she told Bola Ray on Starr Chat.

“I don’t want to bring in the feminine and masculine inequality we’re experiencing in the industry and I don’t want to link it to that. I was pained as a person but I’ll say it is almost impossible to promote a project that is supposed to be for two people when the other party isn’t coming through at all, the music pretty much suffers,” she added.

She said even though she was hurt by what Sarkodie did, she was not much worried because she had then made a name for herself.

“I already had a name for myself and I’ll continue to do that for as long as I can and as God leads me to. It was just a point in my career that I went over and I’m so fortunate. For instance I’m here in Ghana and working on a song with MzVee. It takes two to tango… I’m here to support her and she supports me too,” she added.

I don’t listen to his music, no more fan of him… I only work with artistes I’m a fan of. I’m just not a fan of him anymore.”

Yemi Alade gained popularity in Ghana in 2014 with her ‘Johnny’ song.
