The Beninese icon, Nigerian upstart and Malian legend unite around the single “Africa, One Of A Kind,” a cut from Kidjo’s album, Mother Nature.
Angélique Kidjo is one of today’s African icons. Praised by many media outlets, from the BBC to the New York Times to Paris Match, she is known for her commitment to fighting injustice as an international ambassador for UNICEF. Here, she joins the young Nigerian star Mr. Eazi and the Malian veteran Salif Keita for “Africa, One Of A Kind.”
The founder of emPawa Africa sings: “I will be here to save you, your superman flies for you, because you are one of a kind, I’ll always have you on my mind, near or far, the others must be blind, to not see how special you are, you are Africa.” Accompanied by dancers dressed in traditional outfits, in Antokpa, Benin, the three artists sway to the rhythm of the track, constituting a true declaration of pan-African love.
