Yemi Alade Set To Perform At Prince Williams’ Earthshot Prize Awards
Multiple award-winning Nigerian songstress, Yemi Alade is set to perform at the first-ever ‘Earthshot Prize Awards’ at the Alexandra palace alongside Ed Sheehan, Coldplay and Shawn Mendez.
The event which is organised by the Royal Foundation is spearheaded by Prince William and it recognises inventive solutions to the environmental problems facing the planet.
Hosted by Clara Amfo and Dermot O’Leary, the ceremony hopes to turn the tide against the pessimism many feel towards the issue of climate change by showing the positive work being done to help counter the existential threat to humanity.
The Prince William project combed the globe for the greatest scientific talent, eventually choosing 15 finalists who wowed with extremely exceptional efforts to help conserve the oceans, land, and air.
Five people will be chosen as the recipients of a £1 million funding prize, which will allow them to continue and advance their essential work, which has the potential to help heal our struggling planet.
The five winners will be announced by a star-studded line-up of presenters, consisting of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, athlete, Mo Salah as well as actors Emma Thompson, Emma Watson, David Oyelowo.
The ceremony follows the premiere of the documentary series ‘The Earthshot Prize: Repairing our Planet,’ which delves further into each of the 15 finalists.
The Earthshot prize awards will be aired on Sunday, October 17, 2021.
Yemi Alade has been dominating the charts with her rich voice since the release of her album “Empress” and the EP dubbed “Queen Don Com.”
The afrobeats superstar has just concluded her ‘Empress’ American tour performing in cities such as New York, Washington DC, North Adams, Las Vegas and Houston, Texas.
In a recent interview, she granted on the Sunday Brunch in the United Kingdom, the Johnny singer said that Nigerian music and musicians have now become the toast of the world with the likes of Burnaboy, Wizkid, among others topping charts and selling out concerts around the world.
Yemi Alade also stressed that a healthy competition had made Nigerian artistes better musicians.
She said, “The healthy competition between Nigerian musicians has made our sound better and made us better musicians”.
