In concert, Yemi Alade shows her audience, and her homeland, some love

Nigerian singer Yemi Alade is known for trading lines with other vocalists, notably Benin-born diva Angélique Kidjo and the multiple performers on “Don’t Jealous Me,” a song from Beyoncé’s “The Lion King: The Gift.” Alade’s was the only onstage voice when the exuberant musician played a 70-minute set Saturday night at the 9:30 Club, but more than once she turned the audience into her duet partner. The small but devoted crowd proved capable of singing large chunks of Alade’s tunes without any help from the singer or her tight three-piece band.

Angélique Kidjo and Yemi Alade Make a Forceful Demand for ‘Dignity’

There’s a particular set of scenes in Angélique Kidjo and Yemi Alade’s newest music video that may most resonate with immigrants in the West. A Black laborer does grueling work at a shipping yard for an envelope of cash he designates to send back home; the Western Union paperwork in his locker is a beacon of familiarity and a conduit between worlds. The song’s union of 60-year-old Beninese sensation Kidjo and 32-year-old Nigerian star Alade similarly connects countries, generations, and struggles. Inspired by the youth-led protests against police brutality that rocked Nigeria last fall, “Dignity” is a lively call to continued action and an artful remembrance of the lives lost in the demonstrations.
