Angélique Kidjo picked up the 2020 Grammy Award for Best World Music for her album Celia.
This is the 4th time the African legend is winning an award at the Grammys. She has been nominated nine times at the Grammy Awards.
She overpowered Nigeria’s superstar, Burna Boy and other artistes in the category.
Angélique Kidjo dedicated her Best World Music Grammy to Burna Boy.
"The new generation of artistes coming from Africa are going to take you by storm, and the time has come,” said Kidjo during her acceptance speech.
Though the World Music category remains a dubious one, Burna Boy's nomination was a major milestone for contemporary African music and the significance was not lost on Kidjo.
"This is for Burna Boy, [he] is among those young artistes [who] came from Africa [who] are changing the way our continent is perceived, and the way African music has been the bedrock for every [type] of music," she remarked.
Burna Boy has expressed being a major fan of the celebrated artiste on several occasions.
