Singer, Yemi Alade, has come out to defend her style of dressing which many may have found offensive anytime she is dressed especially on stage.

The singer in a recent Silverbird Tv E-weekly interview, stated that she does not dress to be seductive but the way she feels comfortable with.

She explained that though in other African countries, women still gave half naked but in her own case she is just trying to be African and present herself the real way to her fans.

“If you have followed my music, you will see the way I dress, I like being very comfortable and real with my fans. Not that I am trying to be sexy or expose myself, I just dress for myself and pres¬ent myself to my fans the way I am. In reality, the original African woman is almost half-naked when she wants to dance. Remember in the past, when the women come out to dance; they are almost half-naked, what am I even say¬ing? Till today, in South Africa, there is this festival they do, where women come out without tops, not even a bra. The King does not allow the use of bra at all. I am an African woman, that is why when you see me in some videos I use calabash as bra and other times I wear very short things, not because I am trying to be super sexy, I am only presenting myself the way I am to my fans,” she said.
