2

Benin Republic’s own singer/songwriter and activist Angelique Kidjo won her 2nd ever Grammy for her album, Eve in the ‘World Music Category’ and that’s great. But it’s the lovely African print she wore to the Grammy Awards in LA that has everyone buzzing. On accepting the award the excited 54 year old dedicated the award to the women of Africa.

“This album is dedicated to the women of Africa — to their beauty and resilience. Women of Africa — you rock!. For me, music is a weapon of peace, and today more than ever, as artists we have a role to play in the stability of this world,”

Awww that’s so sweet. Great stuff for real.

What do you think of the outfit?

  1. But you dont explain why peopel are talking or what they are saying? A female entertainer from Africa has a choice to where many things , but if she wears traditional dress, why is that shocking. I think they could have worn something a bit more flattering than that particular style, but I am not seeing what the big deal is.

  2. why the gist around her outfit? that is good representation of the African women

    i dislike those who go for such functions almost naked
