The second show in February continues our month-long commemoration of Black History month (BHM), the celebration of the achievements and survival of Africans in America. The episode presents the return of a feature on the show, African Ethnic Journey now as a quarterly special. On these quarterly specials, we will be discussing specific African ethnic group either on the continent or in the diaspora. The return of this feature for the first quarter on this episode focuses on African Americans in North America in the spirit of BHM. This episode all features, in the spirit of the Valentine Day’s holiday, tidbits about the music career of one of America’s most iconic music artistes and love doctor, eight-time Grammy awards winner, Anita Baker. As part of our dedication to all lovers last week, we shared excerpts about a glorious music career that spanned five decades.
