    Angelique Kidjo has released the official music video of her song “Dignity”, featuring Nigeria’s Yemi Alade.

    The song is a homage to the protestors of the #EndSARS movement last year—Nigeria’s call to an end to police brutality.

    The “Dignity” music video is cinematic storytelling fitting for the message behind the Vtek produced song and shows a bleak view of migrants working at a port who face being unfairly laid off.

    The spirited video reveals that dance and song are the organic liberating forces. Furthermore, it calls for the dignified treatment of Black people.

    Alade brings a dynamic twist to the song with her passionate energy driven by first-hand perspective as an activist who was directly involved in the #EndSARS movement

    “Many people think that police brutality only happens in America, but it’s everywhere.

    This song is against brutality, but it’s also about how we need to treat each other with dignity, treat nature with dignity, and treat ourselves with dignity. Because if we can’t see the dignity that Mother Nature gave to all of us, then how can we walk tall?” Kidjo speaking on the duet and police brutality.

    The song’s hook “respect is reciprocal” makes this song another anthem for reclaiming humanity.

    Kidjo and Alade enliven the visuals with their undeniably bold presence making “Dignity” a powerful cross-generational Beninese-Nigerian collaboration.”

    Quotable lyrics

    Dignity, can hurt you or heal you
    Dignity, I wanna hold on to you

    Were you dey
    When the gunman
    Shoot men down
    No retreat
    No surrender
    If them push you no fall down

    Many come, many go
    We no dey sleep we dey for road.
    We come in peace
