With numerous awards and recognition, the duo have continued to pull the strings in the global music landscape.

Both musicians have won the ‘Best World Music Album’ category at the Grammys, with Burna Boy initially losing the prize to the Beninese singer in 2020.

Kidjo had at the time dedicated her win to Burna Boy, describing him as being among those changing the narrative of music-making in the continent.

“He’s among those artistes from Africa that are changing the way that our continent is perceived and the way that Africa’s has been the bedrock of every music,” she had said.

Kidjo had recently teamed up with Yemi Alade for ‘Dignity‘, a song that addressed police brutality.
