Yemi Alade popularly referred to as Mama Africa is taking a trip down memory lane as she reveals the time her Mum had to sacrifice her economy ticket so she could go to school.
She made this revelation while showing off her mum and herself in London. According to her, her mum did make some sacrifices for her to be able to go to school.
She captioned her post thus;
“London is more than just a City to my family, it marks a time in our lives(20yrs ago) when mum had to sell her Economy class ticket to pay my Primary 6 school fees. Today we Fly Business Class!🌠🌠✈✈ #Next Stop #amsterdam🇳🇱”
With an impressive catalog of hits and collaborations recorded in the past and present, Yemi Alade continues in her stead. Some of her collaborations include the recent feature with grammy award-winning singer, Angelique Kidjo.
Serving as a reminder for many that her story and journey wasn’t all that glamorous, Yemi Alade is one of the very few female artists that have thrived in a relatively male dominant industry.
