Mojisola Odegbami, a 69-year-old Nigerian grandmother based in Abeokuta, southwest Nigeria, unprecedentedly featured in two music videos in Beyoncé’s highly anticipated “Black Is King” album, which premiered on Disney+ on Friday.

Odegbami got showcased in “Bigger” as an African queen, and in “Mood 4 Eva” she was dressed in African attire, including a gele, a traditional head wrap commonly worn in West and Southern Africa.

Her journey to being cast in the album began with a medical trip to California in July 2019, where she met Folajomi “FJ” Akinmurele, a young actor, CNN reported. She would drive FJ, son to her daughter’s friend to practice but would later be signed by the talent company recruiting for the album casts.
