New Video: Angelique Kidjo Feat. Yemi Alade – Dignity
Multiple Grammy award-winning singer, Angélique Kidjo has released the music video to her latest song titled “Dignity” featuring African pop diva Yemi Alade.
This is Kidjo’s first single in 2021 and it was inspired by Nigeria’s youth movement tagged #EndSARS which was protest against police brutality.
“Many people think that police brutality only happens in America, but it’s everywhere,” Kidjo said in a press release. “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?”
The ‘Dignity’ music video is cinematic storytelling fitting for the message behind the Vtek produced song; and shows a bleak view of migrants working at a port who face being unfairly laid off.
