Nigerian afropop and highlife star, Yemi Alade will be performing at the opening ceremony of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON.
The singer announced this through her official Twitter account on January 11, 2023 while describing the development as a dream come true.
The opening ceremony of the 2023 AFCON tournament holding in Cote d’Ivoire is scheduled for Saturday, January 13, 2024.
Alade, who emphasised the importance of prayers, revealed that it’s been her desire to perform at a football stadium in front of a large crowd.
Alade wrote; “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.
7 years after, I’m performing at AFCON. It’s indeed and 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 & working towards your goal. NA WHO STOP E DEY STOP FOR!! Na mouth wey dey open dey chop!!!”
