Few months ago, Yemi Alade‘s “Johnny” became the first music video by an African woman to amass over 100 million views on YouTube. Now, the superstar has smashed yet another record, becoming the first female African artist to attain over one million subscribers on YouTube.
Over the weekend, Yemi Alade broke the news on her Instagram:
“God is the GREATEST, started this journey six years ago. Thanks to everyone streaming / watching my videos and music. Godbless us all.”
Yemi Alade joins an elite club of entertainers to have over one million subscribers, including the likes of P-Square (1.2 million), Davido (1.5 million) and Diamond Platnumz (2.1 million). We’re super pleased for Yemi Alade, who continues to break boundaries in African music.
