She says of African women and her new work: “I’ve spoken for many years about the beauty of African women, and I don’t need to talk anymore about it because on this recording I am letting the voices of the women show their beauty to the world,” Kidjo said. “Eve is all about showcasing the positively they bring to their villages, cities, cultures and the world.”
