Another feather in the hat of Nigerian music has come today with the news that Yemi Alade has signed a licensing deal with Universal Music France.
This comes hot on the heels of her highly rated album ‘Woman of Steel’ which came out recently.
The deal, which was signed between Yemi Alade’s music label, Effyzzie Music Group and Universal music will make it so that Universal would serve as the exclusive worldwide record music partner for the Artiste.
It also means that Universal will be the official Roll-out partner for Yemi Alade.
It has been a good year for Yemi Alade as along with this new deal and a new album, she was also featured on the Lion King album by Beyoncé which featured the likes of Burna Boy and Wizid.
She has been battling for the title of Queen of Nigerian music along with Tiwa Savage who also has a Universal deal.
It seems that while a collaboration between the two would be a fascinating experience, it might never happen as Yemi Alade claims that it might not be very well received.
Speaking in an interview with Ndani TV she said:“All my life when have been choosing collaborations, it is not based on how I feel. It’s unfortunate that with the feelings and troubles that people keep stirring in our ways, it probably will never allow us to ever have a collaboration. Because you’re not sure the outcome would even be positive or be over run by negative things and all the fights.” she said
She continued “When we do music, we do it so people can be happy, so when we do a song together, what are we fueling? What are we encouraging? That’s the most important question when I do collaborations, there is an aim. I think what would be would be,”
Congratulations to Yemi Alade on her new deal with Universal Music.
