It’s official,Angelique Kidjo Wins Coveted Grammy

….dedicates award to Burna Boy

Legendary French-Beninois singer and songwriter, Angelique Kidjo, has emerged winner of the Best World Album category at the Grammy Awards, beating Nigeria’s Afrofusion singer, Burna Boy.

Her album, ‘Celia’, was nominated alongside Burna Boy’s ‘African Giant’. Others in the category included Altin Gun for “Gece”, Bokante & Metropole Orkest conducted by Jule Buckely, “What Heat”, Nathalie Joachim with Spektral Quartet and “Fanm d’Azur.

Described by Time Magazine as “Africa’s premier diva”, Kidjo is famous for her diverse musical influences and creative music videos. It’s her fourth Grammy award.

At the award ceremony in Los Angeles last night, Kidjo, who starred in Kunle Afolayan’s CEO movie in 2014, dedicated her award to Burna Boy in a short acceptance speech, which affirmed that a fresh revolution had started for African music and is being led by the younger generation of talented artistes.

However, with his nomination, Burna Boy has joined a host of other Nigerians like Femi Kuti, Seun Kuti and King Sunny Ade, who had been previously nominated in the same category at the Grammy Awards.

Other Nigerian previous nominees include Babatunde Olatunji, Wizkid, Timaya and Kah Lo. However, Sikiru Adepoju won the Grammy in 1991 & 2009 and remains the only Nigerian to have done so.

    I look after a vape shop directory site and we have had a posting from a vape shop in the USA that likewise advertises CBD items. A Month afterwards, PayPal has contacted use to say that our account has been restricted and have asked us to remove PayPal as a payment method from our vape shop submission site. We do not offer CBD goods such as CBD oil. We only offer online marketing professional services to CBD firms. I have taken a look at Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Reputable Health Store and if you take a close peek, you will witness that they offer a somewhat comprehensive variety of CBD product lines, specifically CBD oil and they also happen to accept PayPal as a payment solution. It appears that PayPal is administering contradictory standards to different companies. Because of this stipulation, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related site. This has limited my payment options and currently, I am greatly contingent on Cryptocurrency payments and straightforward bank transfers. I have consulted with a lawyer from a Magic Circle law office in The city of london and they stated that what PayPal is undertaking is completely illegal and inequitable as it should be applying a consistent benchmark to all companies. I am yet to talk with an additional lawyer from a US law practice in London to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the USA. For the time being, I would be highly appreciative if anybody here at targetdomain could offer me with alternative payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD companies.
