While on tour in North America, Yemi Alade shot a video for her latest release, “Issokay”. While Yemi Alade layers the Egar Boi-produced dance beat with cheeky lines about her superiority, the video follows her on a tour through Toronto, Canada. In the Ovie Etseyatse-directed video, Yemi Alade and her group of casually-dressed black dancers groove airily to the beat against a backdrop of the city’s landscapes and buildings, showcasing African dance steps in the almost isolated areas. The still on-going tour made a stop at the Essence Street Style Festival over the weekend, where Mama Africa and her tour band, Over Sabi Band, performed as one of the headlining acts. Her next stop, according to the official tour website, is Houston, Texas on the 6th of October.
