Nigerian afro-pop superstar Yemi Alade has recently  gifted us with her superb music video for the empowering track ‘Dancina’.Dancina  visuals  showcases another standout track from Yemi’s successful fifth studio album Empress, which was released last year.

‘Dancina’ radiates Yemi’s motivation to bring Africa’s vibrant culture to the forefront of stages worldwide.In the visual,Yemi Alade is poised throughout as she leads her army of dancers and takes viewers on a whirlwind of striking, avant-garde fashion pieces juxtaposed with desolated, urban backdrops.

In the ‘Dancina’ video, Yemi expresses : “If you know me, you know I like to dance, and there’s no way I wouldn’t have something for the dance community. ‘Dancina’ is one of my favourite songs off the Empress album. I’m glad I was inspired to record #Dancina in Amsterdam and came home to Nigeria to shoot the video. I hope y’all enjoy this party starter as much as I do. Note: To #dancina is literally to let loose and move your body like nobody’s watching lol (I created this word and one listen will do the magic).”

Released earlier this year, Yemi shared her radiant dancehall video for ‘Temptation’ featuring Patoranking – which can also be found on her self-written afro-anthem LP Empress. Yemi Alade has so far  accumulated over 450 million streams and views which cemented her as the No.1 afro-pop female artist on the African continent.
