I’m celebrating Queen Salawa Abeni today. A singer and an outstanding woman who is a huge inspiration to me.
Salawa Abeni was born on May 5, 1961 in Nigeria. She began her professional career in waka music when she released her debut album titled, Late General Murtala Ramat Mohammed, in 1976 on Leader Records. It became the first recording by a female artist in Yoruba songs to sell over a million copies in Nigeria. Queen Salawa has won numerous awards. Queen Salawa was crowned “Queen of Waka Music” by the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi in 1992.
She is truly a source of inspiration and a phenomenal woman!
