Dr Penking appreciated Yemi’s musical display and hailed her for making money for the African football franchise.

He alleged that two years before AFCON, Alade usually went into the studio to record a continental-themed song, which made organisers of the football event choose her as a headliner.

“Yemi Alade knows exactly how to cash out from AFCON. Every two years before AFCON, she will enter studio and cook a new single shouting Africa oooooooo.

“Then AFCON will pay her 100 billion to come and perform it at the opening ceremony. Rinse and repeat. Smart money woman.”
