Yemi Odubade (born 4 July 1984 in Lagos, Nigeria) is a Nigerian footballer, currently playing for Gateshead.

Odubade began his football career in England, playing in the Sussex County League for Eastbourne Town in 2002, where he scored over 70 times in just two seasons at the East Sussex club in all competitions. This attracted the interest of Yeovil Town, and he later signed for the club in July 2004. At Yeovil, Odubade found first-team opportunities sparse, playing a total of six times during the club's 2004 05 campaign, scoring once. He left the club in February 2005 and joined Eastbourne Borough shortly after. The following season, Odubade impressed Oxford United manager Brian Talbot in two FA Cup ties, and he joined the League Two side two months later for a fee of £25,000.

He spent three and a half years at Oxford, playing a total of 145 games for the club. Shortly after the 2008 09 season he was released, and joined Stevenage on a free transfer in May 2009. His first season at the club was a successful one, finishing the season as the club's top goalscorer, as well as helping the Hertfordshire outfit earn promotion to the Football League for the first time in the club's history. In January 2011, Odubade joined Newport County on loan until the end of the 2010 11 campaign. On returning to his parent club, Odubade signed for Conference National side Gateshead on a free transfer in June 2011.
