Organisers of the fund raising campaign, the Nigeria Solidarity Support Fund (NSSF) brainchild of Global Citizen (GC), an international advocacy organization, and the Nigeria Sovereign Investment Authority (NSIA) has revealed a crop of A-list Nigerian artists will be performing at the Global Citizen Live event in Lagos, Nigeria on September 25, 2021.
Amongst other objectives, the event is powered to raise ample resources that will ensure that an approximate number of one million Nigerians get vaccinated over the next 12 months.
The event is part of a once-in-a-generation 24-hour global activation that will see artists perform across six continents to help rally citizens in demanding that governments, major corporations, and philanthropists work together to defeat poverty and defend the planet by focusing on the most urgent, interrelated threats. These include vaccine equity, climate change and famine that impact those in extreme poverty the hardest.
Performing at the global event include Davido, Burna Boy, Femi Kuti, Made Kuti and Tiwa Savage.
