DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND: Top Star Yemi Alade Refused Canadian Visa for fear of illegal Immigration

Expected this Sunday, July 24, 2022 in Montreal for the concert “bouquet final” of the Festival Nuits dAfrique, one of the biggest current African musical stars YEMI ALADE has been denied a visa by the Canadian authorities.

Reason: risk that she wants to settle permanently in Canada.
With five albums, an EP and numerous hit singles to her credit, including “Johnny”, a worldwide hit (147 M views on Youtube), #YemiAlade has an uncommon charisma on stage.

It is surprising that an artist of her calibre, who has already performed in front of thousands of people across Africa, Europe and the United States, but also for more exclusive audiences such as the United Nations, the Global Citizen Fund and the British Royal Family, to name but a few, should be refused a visa by Canada for such a far-fetched reason.

As a reminder, Yemi Alade is an artist already nominated for BET Awards, MOBO Awards and was the winner of the ‘Best Female Performer’ at the MTV Africa Music Awards two years in a row, Yemi Alade is also the first African Afropop star to reach 100 million views on Youtube and VEVO with her hit Johnny.
It’s hard to believe that one of the richest women (in millions of $US) in the Nigerian music industry “wants to establish herself permanently” in Canada by taking advantage of her visit to the Nuits d’Afrique Festival
