Popular afrobeats singer, Yemi Alade, has revealed that her viral and breakthrough song, “Johnny”, was leaked by an unidentified source.

She said that if the song was not leaked in 2014, she would not have released it formally, saying that it most likely would not have been released.

Yemi Alade talked about writing Johnny while on tour in Nigeria and how she never imagined the song would turn her into a worldwide sensation.

In a recent interview with Taymesan for the Tea with Taymesan podcast  the singer related the tale and mentioned that the song’s leak happened the day she recorded it with Selebobo.
In response to a question, Yemi said: “Yes, I felt it. I never thought it was a song that leaked; I didn’t release it officially. If you find the picture, it’s a picture of me with some blonde weave.”
The interviewer asked further: “What do you mean it leaked?”

She added: “It leaked online; it was never officially released. Yes, it probably would never have been released. God finds a way to move people and things around.”
