She also shared it with music legends from other countries including Ivorian group, Magic System and Egyptian singer, Mohamed Ramadan.

Her rendition on the AFCON theme song “Akwaba,” meaning “welcome” in Baoule language in Côte d’Ivoire, is musically rhythmic. Her vocalization was topnotch. Not to fail to mention her ebony, queenly styled Ankara dress. Was a great outing for her. Hope this helps.👍”
