The star took over the festival’s main stage on saturday for a 2 hour-long set which saw her running through her entire discography, bringing to the stage special guests like Jay-Z, Solange and even fellow Destiny’s Child bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams.
As expected, Beyonce’s set was electrifying with various aspects of black music, history and culture. A touch of Fela’s ‘Zombie’ song got Nigerians really excited.
It’s certainly not the first time Beyoncé has paid her respects to Fela, she’s spoken of his inspiration on her music on several occasions, even recording a 20-track Fela Kuti-inspired album prior to the release of her album 4 back in 2011.
After her performance, Nigerians & celebrities couldn’t stop talking about her performance.
