Success doesn’t belong to a particular race, if you are talented and you work hard in your chosen field, sooner or later success will come. In the world of music, the biggest success an artist can ever record is winning a Grammy. Grammy award is the biggest award in the music industry, winning one Grammy award is enough to prove that you are different, unique and very good at what you do. What then do we say about about an artist who has won 5 Grammy awards, she must definitely be a queen in her niche. What if I now happen to tell you that, she is an African, at these point you really must be interested in knowing more about her, because it is a known fact that most of these international entertainment awards are usual bias against the black, they tend to favor the white than the black. This should be expected since Grammy was created by them.

Angelique has been into music for quite some time now, growing up as a kid, I knew her song, which was recently remixed by Yemi Alade. She was born to a Beninese father and a Nigerian (Yoruba) mother. She has been in music actively for a very long time, she started active music in 1982. Angelique has done sound track for over 30 movies including the popular animation, lion king 2. During the period of her career she had worked with several mainstream artists including Alicia Keys, several of her songs have reached the billboard chart, her list of awards her quite endless. For the record, she was the one who beat Burna Boy for the last Grammy Award.

If you are a lover of good music, then I’m very sure you will be conversant with her works. For Grammy to have recognized her 5 different times, then I’m sure it’s beyond you to say she doesn’t make good music. Angelique has done African really proud, she most likely the African with the highest number of Grammy awards.

Have you heard her latest song with Yemi Alade, Shekere, In my opinion, it is the best Music Yemi has released in a very long time. Some people believe that the feature will go a long way in influencing Yemi Alade’s career positively. Do you also agree that Shekere is the best song Yemi Alade has released in a whil. Did you know any of Angelique Kidjo’s music before reading this article? I pray that you will be distinguished for good not withstanding your race, in your chosen field, you will be a cause for celebration to you nation, Africa and the world at large. Do you feel she was more deserving of the Grammy award than Burna boy? You must have observed that she wore Ankara in every single picture, she promotes Africa a lot. From the pictures above, one can tell that even at 60, she still has so much energy in her.
