Who’s The True ‘Mama Africa’? Beyoncé’s New Stint Draws Debate

Miriam Makeba, Angelique Kidjo, Yemi Alade and Tiwa Savage are but the few African women whose names popped up during an online debate over the weekend. The debate came up following Beyoncé’s “Black Is King” visual album premiere last Friday on Disney+, with a faction of the internet referring to her as the true Mama Africa based on the stylish continent’s depiction in the film.

Unimpressed individuals claimed she “oversold” Africa at a time when the film was not readily made available in the continent it was shot. Others said that the “Upgrade U” singer profited off Africa yet could not plan a proper African tour. However, most were appreciative of her showcasing the continent’s rich culture to the world. “There are more urgent things to do than to get angry at an African-American woman who is using her means to question, explore and artistically interpret a way to fill the gaps in her identity”, said activist Timeka Smith.
