Angelique Kidjo, UNICEF celebrate Mother’s Day with a thriller

Grammy award winner, vivacious Angelique Kidjo in partnership with UNICEF presented a Happy Mother’s Day treat with a remake of Miriam Makeba’s Pata Pata, aptly entitled, “No Pata Pata.”

A tweet by UNICEF read:

“If you’re not with your mum this #MothersDay send her something joyful-
@UNICEFAfrica & @angeliquekidjo’s music video for Mama #Africa Miriam Makeba’s Pata Pata song is out today in hope of spreading information & joy during #COVID19…”

The video, a montage of shots from several parts of the world, has Kidjo in typical energetic dance rewording the Pata Pata song while giving an advisory on COVID19 social distancing.


It also has participants demonstrating a ‘no pata pata’, meaning, ‘no touch’.
