“My hit song ‘Johnny’ got leaked before I could officially release it” – Yemi Alade [Video]


Popular Nigerian singer, Yemi Alade, has disclosed that an unidentified source had leaked her breakthrough song, “Johnny.”

She said that if someone hadn’t leaked the song in 2014, she would not have released it formally and that it most likely would not have been dropped.

Yemi Alade talked candidly about writing Johnny while on tour in Nigeria and how she never imagined the song would turn her into a worldwide sensation.


In an interview with Taymesan for the Tea With Taymesan podcast, the singer related the tale and mentioned that the song’s leak happened the day she recorded it with Selebobo.

In response to a question, Yemi said;

“Yes, I felt it. I never thought it was a song that leaked; I didn’t release it officially. If you find the picture, it’s a picture of me with some blonde weave.”

The interviewer asked further;

“What do you mean it leaked?”

She added;

“It leaked online; it was never officially released. Yes, it probably would never have been released. God finds a way to move people and things around.”
