Yemi Alade a.k.a Mama Africa, recently snagged the award for Best Female Act at the 2016 at the MAMAs in South Africa last weekend thus proving that she is indeed an African force.
The ‘Johnny‘ crooner, while accepting her award chose to stand for women’s rights by saying, “We’re not only good in the kitchen and other room. We’re good at everything.’
This is coming days after President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari made a comment following his wife , Aisha Buhari’s interview with the BBC, saying her rightful place is in the kitchen and in ‘the other room’.
The female acts nominated in that category include; Tiwa Savage (Nigeria), MzVee (Ghana), Josey (Ivory Coast), and Vanessa Mdee (Tanzania).
Yemi Alade continues to live up to her name ‘Mama Africa’ by winning at the MAMAs for two year in a row.
