To cap a year of immense activity and a surfeit of accolades, Nigerian singer Yemi Alade will be releasing a visual album. The project, called ‘Looking for My Johnny’, is anchored by the singer’s record label Effyzzie Music Group.
Slated for a November release, the album hosts music and dance videos, live performances, acoustic renditions and tour footage.
A tracklist has been announced, showing that the album will feature the videos for newer songs ‘Nagode’, ‘Durotimi’, ‘Tangerine’, ‘Kissing’, ‘Taking over Me’ as well as the ubiquitous ‘Johnny’. It also includes videos for older songs ‘Ghen Ghen Love’ and ‘Bamboo’ and Alade’s Coke Studio performances with Kenyan band Sauti Sol and singer Diamond.
The singer is said to be touring at the moment even as she works on a sophomore effort with the working title Mama Africa. Her debut album King of Queens was received warmly by fans and has spawned a number of singles, most of which have been on rotation on television and radio.
It has been a great year for the singer, who has collected awards from MTV Africa Music Awards, the National Entertainment Awards and a nomination in the Best International Act Africa category at the BET Awards.
