Angélique Kidjo has set off the official music video to her thrilling single, “Africa, One of A Kind” featuring Mr Eazi and Salif Keita.
“Africa, One of A Kind” is a song Angelique Kidjo dedicated to the motherland, Africa which has a fusion of three languages, Bambara, English (Nigerian Pidgin), and Yoruba.
Prior to the song, Mr Eazi quoted that “This is the most important song I have done to date.” Mr. Eazi has composed for us such an amazing duet, an ode to our beloved African continent.
Moreover, “Africa, One of A Kind” is off Angelique Kidjo’s forthcoming project, ‘Mother Nature‘ album which is scheduled to be available later next month. It was filmed in Benin and also features Salif Keita as a special guest. The dance is the Gogbahoun from my village Ouidah!!!
This album is a love letter to Mother Earth and all the values we hold dear: truth, trust, love, connection. If there’s anything the pandemic has taught us, it’s that we are all a part of the same ecosystem—this planet is all we have.
