Yemi Alade has adopted the ‘jump and pass’ strategy as regards the political situation  in Togo.

This comes after the Nigerian singer was called out by a Togolese activist, Farida Nabourema for supporting the country's long term leaders.

The ‘Knack Am’ singer through her manager, Taiye Aliyu said that she went to perform in a yearly music festival in Togo which had no political affiliations.

"It was like a normal show you go for in the country. It was a festival they normally do. It wasn't a political thing at all. Yemi Alade just went there to perform." He said.

Farida Nabourema during an interview accused African celebrities of not using their influence to fight oppression from dictators on the continent.

Citizens in Togo have been protesting against its president, Faure Gnassingbe, who has been in power for 12 years, after the death of his father, Gnassingbe Eyadema, who ruled for over 3 decades.
