Accra, Dec. 28, GNA – Internationally celebrated African Musician, Angelique Kidjo, is the only African, with a representation at the famous Grammy Museum, in Los Angeles, United States of America (USA).

Kidjo’s colourful « kaba and slit » – a traditional African wear, at the 58th edition of the Grammy Awards in 2016, in the USA, was among the music costumes at the Museum.
