The Music Videos of The Week
1. Yemi Alade; Empress Live Session
Effyzzie Music Group presents “Empress Live“, a live performance of the album “Empress” by Mama Africa Yemi Alade. This live performance is a production by Paul Gambit.
Yemi says the title of her fifth album, “Empress”, was inspired by the life and all the countries she had visited in Africa and enjoyed the sounds from her travels. Empress” stuck with the singer when she first visited Ghana and was called empress; she decided it only made sense to call her album “Empress.”
Rain and Double Double performances really showcased Yemi Alade’s vocals and south African rhythm; this is honestly my favourite song in the album, as it just reminds me of Lion King and bringing Africans together, her touch of infusing each song together, when she goes next to another song, true love beat is a song that reminds you of praise and worship in church but with a sophisticated flair and beat. The talented artist performed all her songs from the album.

Dagizah drops the visuals for “Who Goes There” from his debut EP “Zero Your Mind”.
‘Who Goes there” is very clean with a creative style and flair; the singer continues to draw influences from across spectrums, mixing the extemporaneous narrative of owoFuji music with the hard-hitting realities of drill music. Hailing from Abeokuta, rising star, Dagizah, is a synthesis of all these influences, mixing genres in his clear, confident cadence while infusing them with spurts of melodies that make his bops feel lived-in.
