Yemi Alade features Imeh Bishop & Beverly Osu in her New Video | Watch “Tumbum”



On her 2016 album Mama Africa, Nigerian afrobeats artist Yemi Alade explores sounds from all over her continent, but the video for its latest single “Tumbum” sticks closer to home.

In a riff on the food-themed lyrics of the song, Alade plays a restaurant cook who serves up tasty jollof and fufu in a rural Nigerian community. With a playful storyline starring Nollywood luminaries Ime Bishop Umoh and Beverly Osu, it’s a hilarious accompaniment to the Selebobo-produced track.

Watch the video below.

      I like yemi Alade’s songs a lot but I agree she’s becoming too predictable and repetitive.

      This Yemi vs Tiwa thing will rage forever and ever ni sha. But I must agree she’s leading Mama Jamjam at the moment but we all know that won’t last

    That’s why I don’t understand how she could have won best female artist at the Mtv Africa awards

      Jealous?? Don’t criticize if you don’t understand the language. Tumbum Tumbum actually means “Which One”. That’s a song we say in Igbo, when you get confused to choose something out of two. Got it??

    I hardly compare the arts cos it is subjective BUT Yemi Alade sings crap. She is just everywhere musically and not appealing AT ALL.. She is no match to Tiwa Savage any day or time.

    How many of her songs can you sing along to? she is just getting the awards and i cant explain why.

      It’s very simple. The fact that she’s getting all the awards means she’s the best. Tiwa enjoyed hers, so let the chick be. U hate while she elevate. Makes no sense, or does it?? Get a life dear. Hate and jealousy is a disease.

      If u ain’t Igbo, ask questions b4 u say it makes no meaning. It means “Which One” in Igbo. That’s what we say when we get confused in trying to chose between 2 things. You close ur eyes while u say the song, any one out of the two things ur hand touches at the last minute of the song is the one u will take. Got it??
