Also speaking at the event, the hitmaker who is known to sing in Swahili and French revealed that her desire to reach her audience with her music is the reason why she sings in different languages aside from her native pidgin.

‘Woman of Steel’ features a major collabo with Beninese music royalty Angelique Kidjo and  Yemi did not forget to pay homage for the world acclaimed trailblazer. She praised the 59-year-old Kidjo for letting her work with her on ‘Shekere’.
