“…God sent to me Omalicha (Rhythm Fm) and Omawumi …”
Popular singer Yemi Alade, in a recent interview with Naij.com, disclosed her greatest regret.
In her words;
“Hmmm (clears throat), I am not a perfect human being I certainly have my own flaws, committed my own mistakes and I do have my own family problems to deal with. My only regret in life is maybe if I had a sister, I would have had someone who would have my back, who would have fixed the scruffy me, who would have fixed me. If I had that woman or sister, maybe I would not have made the many mistakes. But even if I had no one, God sent to me Omalicha (Rhythm Fm) and Omawumi who were there to fix me, who were patient with me and shaped me to the woman I am today. This experience is also what Mented is all about because I want to pull someone up the ladder.”
Yemi, who recently launched her jewelry collection on November 5th, 2015 at the Civic Center, Victoria Island, Lagos said she is ‘very excited’ about the project and ‘the feeling is beyond words’.
“The feeling is beyond words and I am very excited about it. It took a lot of time for my partner and I to create what we have today. We had so many meetings which took a lot of sacrifice from my side because I’m hardly in the country but somehow, we made this dream come to life. Yemi Alade Collection (YAC), was initiated in order to give a piece of myself to everyone out there without forcing my lifestyle on them.”
Yemi Alade also laid out advice to women, telling them to always learn to reach out to others and do it with love even if the person fails to listen or realize the help you are offering, don’t let that stop you.
