Angelique Kidjo and Yemi Alade have teamed yet again, this time for social-conscious song “Dignity”.
The multiple Grammy-award-winning Beninese singer featured Nigerian singer Yemi Alade for the stunning visuals of the song “Dignity”
The video pays homage to Nigeria’s #EndSARS protesters, who shook the world in October 2020 demanding an end to police brutality.
“Many people think that police brutality only happens in America, but it’s everywhere. This song is against brutality, but it’s also about how we need to treat each other with dignity, treat nature with dignity, and treat ourselves with dignity. Because if we can’t see the dignity that Mother Nature gave to all of us, then how can we walk tall?” Kidjo speaking on the duet and police brutality.

This is not the first time the two African singers from different generations will collaborate. Angelique Kidjo and Yemi previously teamed up for their smash hit single “Shekere”.
“Shekere” was born after Angélique Kidjo personally asked Yemi Alade to revamp her classic “Wombo Lombo”. It heavily samples elements from the original updated to the current mainstream Afro-pop sounds.
The classic visual for “Shekere” joins Alade’s elite videography which made her the first and only female Afro-pop artiste to have over 100 million subscribers on YouTube. She also has a total cumulative visual stream of over 400 million views.
