Trailblazing global act and one of Africa’s most successful artists, Yemi Alade and her record label Effyzie Music Group, hosted an exclusive album release party in Nairobi, Kenya (Tue 15th Oct 2019) in celebration of her recently released fourth studio album WOMAN OF STEEL and short film HOME. The party graced by key media personalities, influencers, celebrities among them: Chimano (of Sauti Sol who also was the host), Victoria Kimani, Naiboi, Hart The Band, Blinky Bill, Patricia Kihoro and Ivlyn Mutua (who translated the Swahili version of “Poverty”—Yemi’s latest Swahili song in #WOSAlbum).
After the screening of the short film, Chimano and Yemi Alade conversed on WOMAN OF STEEL tracks as the baddest DJ Kafi sampled each song for the ecstatic gathering. An ultimate toast steered by Chimano in celebration of Yemi’s success in the music scene, cutting across East Africa, Africa, and beyond was made by all guests raising their glasses to the industry’s favourite tipples, Belaire sparkling wine and Bumbu rum.
Kenya release party of WOMAN OF STEEL comes hot off the heels of successful launch parties in Lagos, London and Paris. The acclaimed WOMAN OF STEEL album features a host of international stars like Rick Ross, Grammy-award winner Angélique Kidjo, Afrobeats icon Duncan Mighty and Nollywood star Funke Akindele.
