Nigerian singer/songwriter, Yemi Alade has disclosed why Beninese-American music legend, Angelique Kidjo’s Mother Nature album won Best Global Music Album at the 64th Grammy Awards ceremony.

Yemi made this known in a tweet on Sunday after Kidjo defeated Wizkid and Femi Kuti to win in that category.

She retweeted a post by @PapiWater, explaining that Mother Nature celebrated Africans’ uniqueness 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’ Drop your Pangolo expectations before you listen to them so you can enjoy good music.”
