Ahead of the arrival of Yemi Alade‘s third studio album “Black Magic“, the vocal powerhouse enchants with the visual for her soaring romantic ballad “Nakupenda” featuring 2017 MTV EMA nominee from Kenya Nyashinski.
Housed on her extended play “Mama Afrique” and aided by the comeback king, the Swahili revamped version of the original sees Yemi Alade belt a classic African love anthem that will stand the test of time.
Yemi Alade rose to fame with her all timr hit dong Johnny after winning a Nigerian talent search in 2009, has since risen to great heights in the continent.
Former Kleptomaniax member Nyashinski previously collaborated with the Nigerian beauty on Coke Studio Africa season 4 in the live performance of Mungu Pekee. The track that saw great success is among the many tracks released by the talented rapper, who had previously been away from the spotlight for years, making his return in 2016.
The video that has already garnered over 50,000 views on YouTube in just one day was directed by Ovie Etseyatse.
This is not the first time Yemi has worked with a Kenyan artist nor sung in Swahili but sshe went a step further and released a French version of the song for her fans in francophone countries.
