Asides the common discussion most are having about how unfair it was for others to perform after Beyonce (lol) there is another discussion on our side of the pond that might even be more popular than the totality of the Grammy discussion itself, And that is one about Oshun
In Ghana we only know one spirit woman who plays in water, Maame Water, and shes not a Goddess she is a scary witch. Luckily for our friends in Nigeria Oshun is an orisha, a spirit or deity that reflects one of the manifestations of God in the Ifá and Yoruba religions. She is one of the most popular and venerated orishas.
So why has she dominated the African end of social media platforms, well apparently Beyonce bit her style, influenced, copied, honored, however you wish to put it, the word has it, Beyonce’s fashion style on the day was emulated from Oshun. The Goddess, or diety is usually acknowledged in a yellow Belly dancer style outfit, with a slit skirt, big gold ear rings and beaded designed bralet.
The international pop artist has made no acknowledgement of this on her social media platform, nor said so in any interview. But with her consistent attempt to express blackness and identify with Africa, it would be far from surprising if the viral discussion is true. See the comparison pictures below.
