yellow warbler was shot north of Maroua/ Cameroon

Hi you all,
The image of a yellow warbler was shot north of Maroua/ Cameroon on the 8th of april 2017. They said at that time, it is a Senegal Eremomela. But I see only a hint of a pale white supercilium. The back and mantle are uniform an dnot green, becoming brighter yellowish green on the rump. And the throat and upper breast are as bright lemon yellow as the lower breast, belly and vent. The bill is blackish with a pale part only in the beginning and the legs are not pale brownish but grey. Please help for ID. Attached you will find 1 image of the bird. ID-help is highly appreaciated
Cheers
Johannes

Female Sunbird? Variable? Or Pygmy?

sorry, I did not mean yellow warbler as a species name. It is just the color: yellow
Cheers

There are several species of Yellow warbler in Africa Ken, they belong within the genus of Iduna and Calamonastides.

A great lesson on why capitalizing English bird names is important!
