Afro B Taps Yemi Alade for an Infectious Remix of 'Melanin'

Kickstart your weekend with this feel-good track.

Afro B is starting the year strong with his remix to "Melanin", featuring Nigeria's very own Yemi Alade.

Since the message of the Team Salut-produced track is all about celebrating black women and their beautiful melanin, it only feels right to hear a verse from her in all her glory.


"This song is my way of showing my appreciation for all the Melanin queens across the world," Afro B tells OkayAfrica. "It felt like it was only right that invited another Melanin queen—Yemi Alade—to join me on this smoothed out Team Salut production."
