To Whom It May Concern:


My name is Deborah Oluwaseyi Joshua, professionally known as Seyi Shay. I am an award-wining singer, songwriter and actress. I am writing this letter to testify of the impeccable talent and achievements of Yemi Alade, who is an Afro pop/RnB artiste, song-writer, composer, actress and entertainer. 


I have been nominated and have won several awards. For instance, I was nominated for the 2021 Net Honors People’s Choice Awards. In 2015, I was nominated as the Best Female & Video of the Year at the MTV Africa Music Awards 2015. Among my notable World nominations is my 2014 nomination as the World’s Best Female Artiste at the World Music Awards. In 2019, my record, “Gimme Love”, won the Best R&B Single at The Headies- a music awards show established in 2006 by the Hip Hop World Magazine of Nigeria to recognize outstanding achievements in the Nigerian music industry. In 2013, I won the Best New Musician of the Year (Female) award for the City People Entertainment Awards. 


I have had the opportunity to work with Yemi Alade. I collaborated with Yemi Alade on my new single titled “Pempe”. Notably, Yemi Alade’s inimitable talent was incredibly important in making Pempe a success. Pempe addresses social media trolls, the inconsistencies with what men want from women, over-sexualization and misrepresentation of women in the music industry and beyond. It follows; her participation in Pempe also shows how she is committed to advocate for a positive change in the music industry. 


Yemi Alade has a lot of achievements under her name. She won the BET Awards in 2015, and was the 2016 nominee for Best International Act Africa. She is also a two time nominee MOBO Awards for Best International Act 2014 and 2015. She is the Winner MTV Africa Music Awards (MAMAs) for Best Female 2015 and 2016. She is also a winner and nominee of other top African Awards. 


In light of the foregoing, I am certain Yemi Alade’s talent will bring a significant contribution to the music industry in the United States.
