Nigerian Afro-pop singer/songwriter, and activist Yemi Alade is excited to announce her upcoming project alongside American multi-award winning rapper and entrepreneur Jay Z.

It seems African artists have collectively agreed this is the year for taking space, setting lanes, carving their names and the world has collectively agreed with open arms.

Sharing on her Instagram page, the 34-year-old songstress revealed to her over 17.6 million followers that she had been chosen (alongside a few other artists) to generate soundtracks for an upcoming biblical comedy-drama movie titled, The Book of Clarence.


Yemi shared a trailer of the movie while announce that she, fellow Nigerian star Adekunle Gold and Jay-Z (who is also among the 6 producers of the movie) would be curating music for the much anticipated already being termed controversial movie.

Captioning the post the 'Bum Bum' hitmaker wrote;

"Clarence has a plan. 🙏🏾


Experience #The Book of Clarence, a film by @Jeymes Samuel, ft new music from Jeymes Samuel, JAY-Z, myself, @adekunlegold, and more.


Exclusively in movie theatres January 12 @bookofclarence"

Adekunle on his part also shared a trailer of the movie announcing his part in it. The father of one talked over how excited he was for the world to watch the movie terming it as a breathe of fresh air in a rather mediocre industry.

"It’s great to see such incredible representation in a first of its kind film. 🙏🏾#TheBookofClarence, a film by @Jeymes features new music from myself, @JAYZ @liltunechi @yemialade and more. Exclusively in movie theatres January 12," wrote the Nigerian artist.

The film by British singer-songwriter, music producer and filmmaker Jeymes Samuel, follows the story of a man, Clarence who deeply struggles to find a better life for himself and his family while fighting to free himself of debt.

Captivated by the power and glory of the rising Messiah, Clarence decides to play a long con game and mimic Jesus Christ himself (this is the controversial part I told you guys about earlier) selling himself as the new Messiah in in 33 A.D. Jerusalem.
