The multi-award-winning Nigerian afro pop and R&B artist as well as actress and entertainer, Yemi Alade (32), recently posted about her awesome time in Namibia on social media.
Her adventure included trips to Swakopmund, Windhoek and Sossusvlei.
“Oh, my goodness! Dubai is great, but Namibia?!!! I am living my best life in Namibia. I had breakfast by the beach front each morning, quad biking in the desert with Desert Explorers, boat sailing in the ocean with Laramon Tours and hiking in the glorious dunes with pink and blue clouds in the sky.
“There is great weather and everything nice!” Alade marvelled on her Facebook account, which has more than nine million followers.
On her arrival, Alade was flocked by fans who took selfies with her outside Strand Hotel, where she lodged.
The musician was also full of praise about the quality of food she enjoyed during her stay at the hotel.
“The best oxtail sauce and smoked barbecued chicken wings I've had in a long time, all at Strand Hotel in Swakopmund,” Alade posted.
The musician was in the Land of the Brave to shoot a music video for her latest single “Temptation”, which features fellow Nigerian superstar Patoranking.
“My new video will be out on 7 April. Subscribe to my Youtube channel now,” she posted on her social media.
