When talking about music collaboration, this has actually become a trend in the Nigerian music industry, and in most cases, it is usually employed for the purpose of promoting artist’s albums, but for an artist like Collins Uche Faith, a k a, Soft, who recently featured Yemi Alade on a hit song, ‘Killa’, such is not the case. Yemi Alade According to soft, collaborating with Yemi Alade wasn’t a strategy to boost his music career. “My collaborations have always been pure love and how connected I felt with the other artistes and not a strategy to boost my music career”, he said.
The Vanguard reports said that the singer explained how Yemi Alade treated him when he requested for the musical collaboration. “To be honest, Yemi Alade never stressed me; she was so sweet to me. All I had to do was to write her on Instagram about the song and to my greatest surprise she replied ‘Yes’.
“Then went on to crack me up by saying she is a fan of my music. Her words instantly brought a smile to my face.

That was how we made the song ‘Killa’. I’m very grateful to Yemi Alade for believing in me”, he said.
Soft, who looks up to Burna Boy as a major musical influence, according to the reports, added that, so far, in his music career, he has been cheated and betrayed. “So far I have seen people switch sides, lie; I’ve been cheated on but I count it all joy,” he said.
