Nigerians reacts to Yemi Alade’s comparison of self to Davido, Wizkid

Nigerian singer, Yemi Alade has sparked controversy online after she
compared herself to Music superstars, Davido and Wizkid.

She was quoted as saying, "The same capacity Wizkid holds down in
Africa, I hold it down, the same capacity Davido holds down in Africa,
I hold it down, the same venues, we all shut it down.

"So there is no number one, and that is the truth but not everybody
will agree to that, people will say Yemi shut up but that is the
truth. Why don't we go ask the promoters, the people who know the

Nigerians on social media have, however, expressed divergent opinions
on the singer's claim.

While some believe that she actually measures up to the mentioned
superstars, others warned her against such comparison, insisting that
Davido and Wizkid are now international names.

Mavin Queen, Tiwa Savage was also dragged into the conversation as
some Nigerians compared her music to that of Yemi Alade.

@Amdou1972 "Only a crazy man can compare Wizkid or DAvido to Yemi
Alade, herself know that she is below them, she said that for not to
downgrade herself."

@King "I think Yemi Alade was high on Ghana weed when she said she's
on the same level with Wizkid and Davido." Coz I really don't want to
believe she said that with clear eyes.

@Okeolodo "I know Davido, I know Wizkid but I don't know who Yemi Alade is."

@Promise_cures "The issue is some of you never think of life beyond
Lagos and Nigeria. Yemi Alade is steady selling out shows across
Africa but we're sleeping on her in Nigeria. If you say it's cos of
lyrical content then you'd better not be listening to Wizkid and

@Sigmund sucre "If the music is a church service, Davido, Wizkid are
the people ushers lead to the front, as for Yemi Alade, let's just say
there is a seat for her under canopy, outside."

@Sanhilz1 "Yemi Alade is killing it, whether she sings rubbish or not.
All Nigeria artistes including @iam_Davido and @wizkidayo haven't beat
her record of stream on YouTube…She can pull a crowd like them in
Nigeria or abroad."

@Manlikeicey "You can criticize Yemi Alade from now till tomorrow,
it's all good but just know she's the biggest female artiste in Africa
read well I didn't say best, I said biggest if you doubt it's fine but
just know if you reply this with epistles I'll still not reply and
argue with you."

@MaziOsita "As far as music on the continent is concerned, she is not
wrong. Yemi Alade is an A-list African musician and performer."

@Starboy "Yemi Alade said that she's on the same level with Davido and
Wizkid there's nothing wrong in believing in yourself Falsely."

@AtomTgold "Until Tiwa Savage release another banger. How many times
have you heard her grant interview and "say" she is the biggest. Most
times it's Yemi Alade that does that. I'm not sure I have listened to
any Yemi's song aside Johnny. Tiwa makes the song do the talking for
her. Yemi lack lyrics."

@KelvinOdaz "Yemi Alade's fame outside Nigeria is something close to
Sky B in 2007/2008. You knew that guy was singing trash but you can't
deny his fame. He was so huge back then. Like Yemi Alade's music or
not, but she is definitely the biggest Nigerian female artist outside
of Nigeria."

@SegunHAssan "So Yemi Alade has suddenly become a thing to reckon with
in the Nigerian music Industry and Africa as a whole."

@Sammieyellowe "Tiwa Savage is the biggest female artiste in Nigeria
at the moment, Yemi Alade was one time the biggest female artiste when
Tiwa Savage was pregnant, she used that opportunity really well to
come out strong."

@Duruchibuzore "Yemi Alade has shut down some of the world's most
iconic centres. But the Nigerian entertainment media is favorable to
the men when it comes to news dissemination. Yemi has a cult
followership outside Nigeria."
