Watch Yemi Alade Soulfully Perform ‘Poverty’ In Swahili

Posted on

Yemi Alade continues to promote her Mama Africa agenda which she’s fed with consistency since she gleaned the continent’s appreciation of her music. Ahead of the release of her highly anticipated fifth studio album, she delivers yet another live session of Poverty, a standout off Woman Of Steel, following other live performances of fan favourites including True Love and Boyz. The icing on the cake of this performance is her articulation in Swahili.

As usual, Yemi Alade dazzles with this epic live rendition. She throws herself into the performance, completely immersed in her narrative as she receives support from a live band and a group of backup singers who add to the life the former breathes into her words.

The release of this video is timely as it inspires hope with its upbeat instrumentals and uplifting words in the midst of the tragic occurrences that have plagued the continent.
