FCT Minister names street after Peruvian

FCT Minister, Bala Mohammed

The Minister says the Peruvian, a singer and former Culture Minister in Peru, is “mother of Africa”.

The FCT Minister,  Bala Mohammed, has ordered the naming of a street in the Federal Capital City, Abuja, after a Peruvian Pan-African fighter, singer and former Culture Minister, Susana Baca.

The Minister gave the order, while receiving the former Peruvian Minister of Culture and two-time Grammy Award winner accompanied by the wife of former German Ambassador to Nigeria, Maria Cecelia Toledo, in his office Thursday.

Mr. Mohammed described Ms. Baca as “mother of Africa who dedicated her life to the struggle for the emancipation of Africa and Latin America that have suffered slavery and racial discrimination”.

He described Ms. Baca’s visit as a home coming because Africa remains the continent of the black race across the globe.

Speaking earlier, Ms.  Baca said that she is proud to be in Nigeria, being the largest country of black people in the World.

She revealed that she is in Abuja to attend the 6th OperAbuja to celebrate the African culture and renaissance.

The Afro-Peruvian singer and fighter for the African legacy and Afro descendants in Latin America is expected to perform during the 6th OperAbuja on Saturday.

Maria Cecelia Toledo, the wife of the former German Ambassador to Nigeria, who accompanied Ms. Baca to the FCT Minister’s office, is the founder of Abuja Metropolitan Music Society and Artistic Director, OperAbuja.
