The “Africa’s premier diva” according to TIME Magazine attended the event where she won the award for ‘World Music Album’ for her album, “Eve”.
This is the second time the singer-songwriter and activist from the Benin Republic is winning a Grammys. The 54-year-old “2014 Most Influential Africans” by New African magazine and Jeune Afrique 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,” Kidjo said as she accepted the award at a ceremony in Los Angeles.
