Poor Yemi Alade falls for the same lies again in the video for “Tumbum“, her latest single.
For the sixth single off of her album Mama Africa, Nigerian songstress Yemi Alade has chosen to release “Tumbum”, a song that might encounter the same success as the now famous “Johnny”. On the Selebobo-produced track (the musician has been a long-time collaborator now), the proclaimed “queen of afrobeats” uses and abuses of the vocabulary of her home country food to tell the story of a love triangle.
In the video, she plays the role of a village cook known for her tasty jollof rice and beans. Her man, played by comedian Ime Bishop Umoh, is fond of her cooking but it looks like he also has a thing for the fufu served in another restaurant owned by Yemi’s rival, starring actress Beverly Osu.
