Singer Yemi Alade has performed at the opening ceremony of the African Cup of Nations (AFCON).

The 34-year-old wowed the crowd as she performed the official soundtrack of AFCON at the event on Saturday after announcing her performance on Thursday.

She also posted behind-the-scenes moments from the performance.

While announcing her performance, Yemi Alade said she has desired to perform at the stadium since 2016 and her dream has finally come through.

“I can’t buttress the importance of prayer and speaking into existence your heart desires. Since 2016, I have desired to perform at the stadium for football ceremonies surrounded by 100’s of dancers and millions of people. A lot of calls came in almost every year when football championship preparations were made, but none was favourable.

“I never said this, but at some point, I started feeling like my team was chasing them away, but something told me to. let them do their job.7YEARS AFTER, I’m PERFORMING AT AFCON. IT’S INDEED AN HONOUR, A DREAM COME TRUE  and it’s just the beginning!! God bless my team and most especially Jehovah; the captain of my ship that never …fails. Keep praying and working towards your goal. NA WHO STOP E DEY STOP FOR!! Na mouth wey dey open dey chop,” she wrote on X.
