    She’s one of the most compelling new acts on any continent, raised between Accra and Atlanta. Through her music, Amaarae confronts the narrow definitions of womanhood. The quintessential African princess of pop speaks to Eve Jackson about her genre-defying album “The Angel You Don’t Know”, being at the forefront of a group of African artists, including Burna Boy, who are waking us up to the fact that Africa is setting the global tempo for pop music and why she refuses to be boxed in.
