Amazing performer, Yemi Alade, needs little or no introduction.

The MAMA Africa crooner, in a new interview with Sunday Scoop, revealed that her hit track Johnny, which set hearts racing, body moving and recognition increasing, was actually released by mistake.

According to Miss Alade, if the song had not first been leaked online, she may never have released it.

In her words:

“I was in the studio with Selebobo and we were just goofing around trying to come up with a nice sound. The first line for the song just came out playfully and I continued. I never thought that it would become a hit and if not that the song was leaked, I may never have released it.”

Miss Alade, also talked about her heritage, saying being Igbo and Yoruba, is of great advantage to her.

“You cannot underestimate the importance and role of tribes in Nigeria as it is taken very seriously. I am very proud of my heritage as an African and I try to portray in every way that I can and everywhere I go. Being partly Yoruba and Igbo is a big plus for me as it has helped me to connect with both cultures. However, I believe that both cultures are inextricably intertwined because they share a lot of similarities,” she said.
