Yemi Alade defends Angelique Kidjo’s win at the Grammys

Talented Afro pop singer, Yemi Alade has defended Beninese legend, Angelique Kidjo who won the Best Global Music Album for her song, Mother Nature at the 2022 Grammy.

According to Alade, the album deserved the win.

Alade, who is now a Grammy winner as a result of her collaboration with Angelique Kidjo, spoke while reacting to fans of Wizkid who felt Kidjo does not deserve the title.

She retweeted a post by @PapiWater, explaining that Mother Nature celebrated Africans’ uniqueness and victims of the #EndSARS protests in Nigeria and climate change.

She said, “Angelique Kidjo dropped an album, in which the headline song talked about the dangers of climate change-induced disasters (that the West is worried about) and how it will impact Africa more but you are wondering why she won a Grammy for that body of work.

“Stop playing. Please take your time to listen to the album. Listen to Africa, One of a Kind and Mother Nature.

“Drop your Pangolo expectations before you listen to them so you can enjoy good music.”

Angelique Kidjo defeated Nigerian artistes namely Wizkid with his Made In Lagos Deluxe album, Femi and Made Kuti with Legacy + album all nominated in the same category.

She beat Wizkid in the Grammy Awards 2022. She also defeated Ghana’s Rocky Dawuni and America’s Daniel Ho & Friends who were in the same category.
