Sonorous singer, Omawunmi who recently released her comeback single, ‘Play Na Play’ featuring Grammy Award winner, Angelique Kidjo has shared her experience while working with the legendary singer.
In a recent interview, Omawumi described working Angelique Kidjo as refreshing and memorable. “She is so good at what she does. Mama Angelique that is what I call her. She doesn’t have any airs. She is playful, fun and very hygienic. She sings effortlessly. When she was recording I was just in awe. I was just saying: “I want to be slim like this”, I want to be energetic when I am her age.”
Narrating how difficult it was to reach out to her, Omawunmi disclosed that, “It was difficult to get her, but it wasn’t difficult the moment I reached her. With the help of my manager, he got in touch with her through someone else that also doubles as a booking agent for me. It was like a dream come true for me. When I was shooting with Angelique at some point I started crying I couldn’t believe it. It was like a real honour for me.”
