If I attempted to define Angelique Kpasseloko Hinto Hounsinou Kandjo Manta Zogbin Kidjo in words, I would fail. But she has all the power of fire, water and wind combined!
The times my sisters and I spent dancing to her music, especially @matshepo13 frog jumping to Agolo while @thy_xolee and I sang our lungs out, remain unforgettable (they're going to kill me 😋). But my highlight was meeting her, twice ❤ and seeing her live performances several times. Batonga still does things to me 🙈😂 On stage, she generous, involved with her audience, a hell of a dancer, electrifying and leaves you high! Ooooh that voodoo that you do #angeliquekidjo ❤❤❤ She's a living icon, a true anthropologist, singer, songwriter, and her honour list is as long as my arm. Deservedly so, she's been a true ambassador for Benin and our continent as a whole, for over 3 decades. Representing her maternal Yoruba and paternal Fon ancestry in a way no other but a truly gifted person of her calibre could. She sings in both languages plus French, Gen and english as well. Her latest work, Remain in Light is available now.
Thank you for the music Queen 🎶🖤👑 Discover her for yourself www.kidjo.com @angeliquekidjo_official
