World renowned video streaming platform, YouTube has conferred on Nigeria’s Mama Africa, and award winning singer and performer Yemi Alade the honorary Golden Play Button for reaching one million subscribers on her YouTube channel.
The YouTube Global team who are currently on a visit in Africa have been meeting key players in the Pan-African region to honour them for adding digital value to the growth and development of digital music.
Yemi who recently collaborated with American singer Beyoncé on her most recent album “The Lion King: The Gift“, received the award from YouTube during a grand ceremony, barely one month after becoming the first female Afro-pop/Afrobeats artiste to garner over one million YouTube subscribers.
The Afrobeats singer took to her Instagram page to appreciate everyone who has supported her musical career and also thank Youtube for the honour.
Yemi Alade is currently gearing up to release her fourth studio album titled “Woman of Steel”
