The bond African artists share was displayed for the world to see at last month’s Grammys when Angelique Kidjo dedicated her Grammy for World Music Album to Burna Boy. She continues her harmonious relationship with Nigeria, joining Yemi Alade to celebrate African music in the newly released music video for “Shekere”.
“Shekere” is one of the tracks on Yemi Alade’s album, ‘Woman of Steel’ and the accompanying video directed by Ovie Etseyatse, follows the tribal-tribute vibe of the song. We see Yemi Alade and Angelique Kidjo performing their verses dressed in traditional attires while surrounded by vibrant tribal African costumes. Some of the shots are set in a studio, but we also see them in an outdoor location where the famous Maasai jumping dance is performed along with other African cultural dances.
Watch the music video for “Shekere” below.
