US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken Adds Bisa Kdei’s ‘Yard’ To His Top 10 Favourite Songs



Anthony Blinken, the United States Secretary of State, has revealed himself to be a fan of Bisa Kdei’s 2021 song Yard.

Mr. Blinken announced this on his official Twitter account on December 31, 2021,

The Embassy of the United States of America (USA) in Ghana reposted Mr. Blinken’s message, which was shared over 100 times in little less than an hour.

His Tweet read: Music brings people together–it transcends borders and everything else that might otherwise divide us. As we close 2021, I’m sharing some of my favorite songs released this year (or recently), by artists around the world. Hope you enjoy as much as I have.

Meanwhile, The city of Cape Town has paid its last respect to the late Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, who is often associated with the color purple.

Since his death on Sunday, December 26th, 2021, at the age of 90, the legacy of ‘The Arch,’ as he is fondly called, has been illuminating up the country in honor of the father of South Africa’s “rainbow nation” (as he termed it at the dawn of democracy).

Table Mountain, City Hall, and Tutu’s favorite cathedral, St George’s Cathedral, have been lit in purple light since Sunday night to commemorate and honor “Cape Town’s greatest inhabitant and all that he advocated for,” according to the city’s mayor, Geordin Hill-Lewis.

In the height of the apartheid era, Desmond Tutu was the city’s first black archbishop, a position he was using to fight out against the racist administration.

“I hope also that the image will be a reminder to the world of the great challenges South Africa has overcome, of the great people who helped us to overcome those challenges, and that by following in the Arch’s example, every one of us can also make a positive difference in the world,” mayor Hill-Lewis said.
