Angelique Kidjo dropped an Album 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?
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.
