From Na Gode to Johnny: Check Out Our Top 5 Videos by Yemi Alade

Since the release of hit track ‘Johnny’ in 2013, Yemi Alade has been mobilizing an army of fans. The success of the music video for her breakthrough song “Johnny,” made way to the Grammy museum.

Most recently, her videos are best known to be of high-definition (HD) coupled with intriguing costumes – depending on the theme of the song, you may learn a few dancing steps from Yemi and her superb choreography team.

Approximately, sixteen [16] videos have been officially released by the “Fi Me Sile” singer, since the beginning of her career – an amazing turn from her ‘Peak talent’ days.

With 2 full length albums under her belt, Yemi Alade together with her label, Effizie Records  have so far worked with some of the best video directors in the game like Clarence A. Peters, Ovie EtseyatsePaul Gambit, TomRobson, and Sesan.

From her growing list of mostly super energetic music videos, has decided to share 5 videos we’ve found  compelling (In terms of, storyline, costume, picture quality and choreography).

Watch our top 5 videos by Yemi Alade in descending order below.
    1. Na Gode (feat. Selebobo) – Released: 2015

      The montage of shots of Yemi served a passionate purpose for the song. The song and the video are a perfect match – the location is spectacular. The scenes of Yemi and the kids is everything. This song shows her voice range – not just about the fast songs.

      ‘Na Gode’ ft Selebobo video was directed by Paul Gambit.

    2. Sugar – Released: 2015

      Animations and special effects were taken to another level by Paul Gambit and his crew. A video style reminiscent of Rihanna’s Rude Boy. The editing must have taken lots of time and efforts for it to come out as nice as it did. You gotta love the crazy dance moves also. By the way, someone please be nice and me tell dancer Ezinne Asinugo (blonde on low cut) that,  …? .

    3. Ghen Ghen Love – Released: 2012

      Just like the title “Ghen Ghen,” Yemi’s entrance is still mind blowing (a nice remake of Beyonce’s Crazy In Love video without the burning car and Jay Z, of course) . This video showcased Ms Alade as a performer – she danced her ‘a**’ off.

      Paul Gambit as the director, created this first exciting and major video for Yemi.

    4. K.I.S.S.I.N.G – Released: 2014

      We know the nursery rhyme of the two little dickie birds, right? Yemi Alade with the help of director Sesan, illustrated the nursery rhyme with two cute kids. The look on the little girl’s face after she kissed the boy will forever be heart melting. In this video, Yemi showed her loving side in this video. It was also the first video for Yemi shot outside of Nigeria.

    5. Johnny – Released: 2014

      Comedian Bovi, playing the role of a news reporter, is the protagonist of the story line for the music video. The costume, the choreography, the story,the picture, the filters and effects used in the video are top notch. The is one of the most ridiculously successful music videos in Africa. Also, this is her most viewed video on YouTube with 47,387,314 views.

      Directed by the amazing Clarence Peters, this video defined Yemi’s stance in what seemed like a saturated industry. This video introduced us to the ‘King of Queens’. This video gave us Yemi the performer which was brilliantly captured by the director. This video gave us an insight into her energy.

      Currently in Nigeria, there is no other female artist that has her stage ability. “Eye wey dey cry no go fit ignore this video.”

So far, Yemi stays competing with herself, breaking boundaries, winning the heart of many with her music and videos. Just as the title of her sophomore album described, Yemi Alade through some of her music videos, has broken down the explanation of the “Diary of an African Woman.”
