Here is another amazing video of Angelique Kidjo speaking the ‘Yoruba’ dialect fluently in a Lagos studio.

The Beninese Legendary singer, Angelique Kidjo who bagged the ‘World Best Album’ category at the 62nd edition of Grammy Awards, was spotted speaking a Nigerian language ‘Yoruba’ with Nigeria’s inspirational singer, Asa.

However, it is shocking, to see a Beninese singer who could speak one of the languages among the south-western region of Nigeria fluently just as if she was raised from there. She greeted Asa with the words “omo iya mi” meaning my mother’s daughter. According to the singer, it was her first visit to Lagos since 1993, when she was still a 13-years old teenager.
