When singer and songwriter Erykah Badu found out in 2015 that her heritage traces back to Cameroon, she decided to make a trip there.

The discovery was one of spiritual enlightenment, according to OkayAfrica, which followed her during her visit back home. Badu, who is from the Bamileke tribe, met with chiefs and locals during her stay and said that the journey was “just another piece to help me become a better Erykah…in America.”
