Yemi Alade thrilled fans with her single ‘Oh my Gosh’ earlier this year. The song quickly gained momentum because of its popular slang and unique beat.
Fans were still basking in the euphoria of the new melody, when she shocked many by announcing her collaboration with music heavy weight and owner of Maybach music, Rick Ross.
The audio was beautiful and it trended for days on social media; twitter precisely and was applauded by many.
Yemi Alade has also dropped the visuals for the remix of ‘Oh My Gosh’ featuring Rick Ross and it is quite entertaining.
The fact that the melodious singer maintained her usual ‘Africaness’ and still owned the song, made it excellent.
