Yemi Alafifuni is a talented artist with a passion for gospel, pop and R&B. Hailing from Nigeria, this charismatic British singer and songwriter managed to combine stunning melodies with infectious grooves and great beats, in order to create a catchy, yet direct and edgy sound.
Yemi’s recent album release, “Father”, is a great example of his sonic vision, marking a really unique step forward for this artist, whose sound is becoming increasingly more personal and defined, one release at a time.
With his music, Yemi can truly connect with the audience, as well as sharing a really powerful message of hope & God through his lyrics. For this reason, he has often been compared to artists as diverse as Bebe Winans, Donnie McClurkin, Alvin Slaughter and Luther Vandross, just to mention a few.
For many years, he has led and been an active member of the church choir. He had won several local gospel singing soloist competition during his early years but his passion isn’t about awards or position. His first recording album was ‘Uncensored Worship’ which was released on the 4th of April 2015.
‘A refreshing and highly tuneful, dynamic softly sang tune. The singer has a lovely, sweet adorable vocal voice. The melody was just right, quite mellow. The chorus sounded sublime and was well composed.’ – Anonymous

Passion is on God. Seeing Jesus glorified everyday.
“All of man’s existence is a mystery and the only phenomenon that makes sense is the existence of God.
The understand that God has a son who came for humanity just to bring man back to where he fell – the presence.
Growing up in a challenging environment, Yemi has learnt to engage God in areas early in life. He believes that there is more of God, the more you know Him, the more you seek to know.
Yemi believes in the Trinity – the Father is always good, the son (Jesus) mediates for us all constantly and the Holy Spirit is the seal of God’s power working in and through us.
Music is the conduit of God’s love, the reminder that we are all sons and the ever presence of Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all we can ask or think. Music makes perfect sense when God is in it all. Nothing else matters
There is more of God… Always good”.
