I'm 'Seeing' Alot Of Men At The Moment - Yemi Alade

Popular Nigerian songstress, Yemi Alade, in this interview with Sun Newspaper, opened up a bit about fame, her relationship and her ideal man.  See extract below...

Did you know you would be­come this big five years ago?
Well, it has always been my prayer. I had no idea how it would happen but I am just a pencil in God’s hands.
What has fame denied you?
Wow! I can’t walk on the streets anymore like I used to do. I used to enjoy and love taking long walks but I can’t anymore.
Is there a particular food or snack you have missed so much on account of stardom?
Well, it’s akara (bean cake), I love akara but this is not a situation of fame. Sometimes when I go to see my mum, there is always akara.
Which artistes influenced your beginnings?
So many did. In Nigeria, Omawunmi has always been an inspiration. Beyoncé is definitely another big source of inspiration.
Despite your fame you have steered clear of controversies. How did you pull it off?
I don’t look for trouble; that is the secret.
When the time comes to finally settle down, what tribe would you settle for?
It is beyond tribe for me; tribe should be the least criterion.
Are you seeing any man right now?
O! Yes I am. You can see many men around (points at male guests at the event amid laughter)
Who is your ideal man?
He has to be God fearing, have good prospect, and of course, a sense of humour.
