Why Angelique Kidjo Defeated Wizkid, Femi Kuti, Others To Win Grammys -Yemi Alade.

Everyone was definitely rooting for their favorite artist to win the Grammy Award last night.


Tension has aroused as Angelique Kidjo won the “Best Global Music Awards”. Though, many people said she isn’t worthy of the award and Wizkid is the ideal nominee for the category.


Nigerian Afropop singer, Yemi Alade, has given her opinion that Beninese legend, Angelique Kidjo’s “Mother Nature” album deserved to win the Best Global Music Album at the 64th Grammy Awards ceremony.


The category also had Nigerian artistes namely Femi and Made Kuti with their Legacy + album and Wizkid with his Made In Lagos Deluxe album.


Ghana’s Rocky Dawuni and America’s Daniel Ho & Friends were also triumphed over by Angelique in the category.


Yemi Alade, who is now a Grammy winner technically, courtesy of her collaboration with Angelique, spoke while responding to uprisings from Wizkid’s fans.


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


The post read, “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’
