It’s Afro Music to the world.
Beyoncé has always tapped into the black heritage power, a thing we can see from some of her songs and artistic performances.
At the Coachella in 2018, Beyoncé paid tribute to legendary Fela Anikulapo Kuti by performing a rendition of the Afrobeat legend’s classic 1976 track, ‘Zombie.’
Beyonce To Feature Wizkid, Shatta Wale, Yemi Alade and Others
She also featured the prolific, award-winning writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s speech, ‘We Should All Be Feminists,’ which Beyoncé previously sampled on her song ‘Flawless.’
The hype for the reimagining of the Disney Classic Animation ‘Lion King’ in 3D was championed by Beyoncé as she plays the voice of Nala, The Lion Princess.
Beyoncé is also the brain behind the Soundtrack of the movie; Being the Executive producer of the music inspired by the movie, Beyoncé has once again tapped into the African heritage.
