Femi Kuti, Angelique Kidjo, others celebrate UNICEF at 70

Afrobeat singer Femi Kuti, alongside other top African celebrities, was part of the team in New York for the celebration of the 70th anniversary of The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) which held recently.
The artiste, who is also a United Nations ambassador, revealed that it was nice performing alongside Angelique Kidjo, confessing that he also met one of his favorite actors, Jackie Chan.
“Nice catching up and performing with my sister, Angelique Kidjo,” he stated.
UNICEF is one of the known world organizations that has taken it upon itself to fight violence against children.
According to an official statement released by UNICEF, one of the body’s biggest issues is the rising incidence of violence against children and due to the middle income status of Caribbean countries (under UNICEF’s portfolio), and limited resources, the organisation partnered local and regional agencies like CDEMA and The Child Care Board, which also have children’s best interest at heart.
UNICEF’s representative, Khin-Sandi Lwin, who spoke to The Barbados Advocate after UNICEF’s 70th Anniversary service at St. Matthias Anglican Church on Sunday, said the UNICEF team has worked closely over the seventy years with government, civil society and churches in tackling successfully the most critical children’s issues, such as health, nutrition and education.
Also present at the celebration galore were David Beckham, Angelique Kidjo, Millie Bobby Brown, Ishmael Beah and others.
