Popular Nigerian singer, Yemi Alade will perform at the upcoming 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.
The star made the revelation on her X page.
According to her, she had been desiring to perform at football ceremonies since 2016.
While recognizing the importance of prayer, Yemi Alade said, “I can’t buttress the importance of prayer and speaking into existence your heart desires, noting that she is honoured to perform at AFCON.
Alade also described the feat as “a dream come true”.
“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 an honour and a dream come true. It’s just the beginning! God bless my team.”
The Ivory Coast will host the 34th AFCON from January 13 to February 11.
