Following the release of her album, Woman of Steel last week, Yemi Alade released a music video and now a short film for her lead single "Home."

The emotional short follows a tortured love story between Yemi, who plays Nneka in the film and her lover Austine (played by Frankincense Eche-Ben).

She has to escape an abusive grandmother and a mundane life in rural Nigeria in order to be reunited with him, in the hopes that they can run away together and live a better life.

The film also includes a colourful performance of "Home" in between footage of Nneka's journey to meet Austine.

The short film was written and directed by frequent collaborator Clarence Peters, who also directed the film's original music video.

‘Home’ is one of the singles that the artist dropped ahead of the release of Woman of Steel, along with "Give Dem" and the dance banger ‘Bounce’.

"Woman of Steel is all about drawing the inner strength that you have in you and being the superhero that you've always needed," Yemi Alade said during an interview with OkayAfrica ahead of the album's release.

As the "Nigerian Queen of Music Videos," it only make sense that the artist would take things to the next level by producing a short film.
