It is no surprise Beyonce graced the new edition of the British Vogue Cover after a successful release of The Gift and Black is King album featuring a variety of African artists.
In an interview with Ghanaian UK Editor-In-Chief of British Vogue, Beyonce reveals her journey through the shoot of Already video featuring Shatta Wale in a series of questions and answers.
Edward Enninful asked, “Being of Ghanaian heritage, I was of course excited to see your work celebrating African culture so thoughtfully and passionately. As an African American, how do you see yourself and your work in relation to the global black community?“
“Shout out to Ghana! We shot there for the “Already” video. We worked with Shatta Wale and the choreographer Dancegod Lloyd. I am doing what my family has always done in celebrating and uplifting the black community. We are investing in young people’s education with college scholarships in the US and job training with our BeyGood programme in South Africa. I’m also proud of the work we’ve done through BeyGood and the NAACP [National Association for the Advancement of Colored People] to support black-owned small businesses that would not have been able to survive this year“, Beyonce replied.
