Nigeriaโ€™s afropop princess Yemi Alade first came to fame winning the Peak Talent Show (a forerunner to the current Nigeriaโ€™s Got Talent TV series) in 2009, and is best known for her entertaining video and single โ€œJohnny,โ€ which achieved chart success across West Africa as well as in South Africa, and in the UK.
