Many of the you don’t know so let’s give you some education while you all scream Slay, Queen at Beyoncé‘s 2017 Grammy Awards performance.

The pop star who is pregnant with twins, debuted her baby bump tonight for the first time since announcing she’s pregnant with twins a couple of weeks ago. For her performance which also featured her 5 year old daughter Blue Ivy Carter and mother – Tina Knowles, Bey embraced and showed off her pregnant belly in a gold bikini and gold sequin gown which she topped off with a gold medusa crown.

But what many don’t know is that Bey drew inspiration from Nigeria for her performance, specifically the Yoruba culture.

For her much talked about Grammy award performance Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter channeled Oshun, the Yoruba goddess of love, fertility and healing.

Beyonce as Oshun, Yoruba goddess of love & fertility

This isn’t the first time the Grammy Award-winning artist has paid homage to Oshun and Yoruba culture. She did the same in her much talked about maternity shoot, announcing her twin pregnancy and last year in the video for “Hold Up” off her visual album Lemonade.


For her Grammys performance she also channeled Black Madonna/Black Virgin which is the statue or painting of the Blessed Virgin Mary in which she, and  the infant Jesus, are depicted with black skin.
