Have you already seen the incredible new music video from Yemi Alade? Let's look together, friends! Also, there is Alade’s review on her clip in the article =)
''Best Female'' winner Yemi Alade is back with the official video for her song ''Tumbum''. Yeeep! Yemi Alade releases a humorous music video production for the song "Selebobo" produced song ''Tumbum" off her sensational second album "Mama Africa: The Diary of an African Woma."
The video was directed by Paul Gambit and has Ime Bishop Umoh who is playing the love interest. He has romantic feelings for her (in the clip). The afro-pop dance anthem ''Tumbum'' is the sixth single from the album, "Mama Africa," and comes after Yemi Alade new single "Want You" and "Gucci Ferragamo."
The plot of this, MTV MAMA 2016 and MTV MAMA 2015, Yemi Alade's music video is described quite ambiguous by some website:
"It features her as a buka owner while Beverly Osu plays her rival fighting for the affections of the same man and trying to woo him with food."
"In a riff on the food-themed lyrics of the song, Alade plays a restaurant cook who serves up tasty jollof and fufu in a rural Nigerian community. With a playful storyline starring Nollywood luminaries Ime Bishop Umoh and Beverly Osu, it’s a hilarious accompaniment to the Selebobo-produced track."
"Yemi Alade serves up an interesting, thought-provoking, and highly entertaining video for the 6th single off her Mama Africa Album titled Tumbum. Enjoy!"
As part of a Q&A with The FADER — live on the site today — Alade explained the importance of the topic. In Nigeria, food isn’t just for consumption but is a cultural representation. Different states in the country are known for their native delicacies.
“The video was filmed a few months ago after several weeks of dance rehearsals,” Alade added, speaking via email. “It was a sunny day — thank God — with no signs of rain, and the sky was nicely lit. I had so much fun playing the role of a village girl, and I even did a little sumo wrestling to win my man back!”
