Global Citizen, Lagos host live 24-hour concert tomorrow
The international advocacy organisation, Global Citizen, supported by the Lagos State Government and Access Bank, will hold a 24-hour live broadcast tomorrow, September 25.
The events and performances will be filmed across six continents aimed at uniting the world, defending the planet
and defeating poverty.
Global Citizen Live is part of Global Citizen’s 2021 global campaign. A recovery plan for the world, resolving COVID-19 for all, ending the hunger crisis, resuming learning for all, safeguarding the planet, and increasing equity for all are the five core objectives of the recovery plan.
The broadcast will feature musicians, celebrities, and world leaders from six continents working together to make a change and impact climate and poverty.
Speaking of his excitement for the cause, Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, said that the state “is thrilled to be a part of Global Citizen Live.
“With the challenges of rising poverty, hunger and vaccine inequity facing Africa, we need businesses and governments around the world to respond to the call of citizens, stand in solidarity with the people of Africa, and
commit to defending the planet and defeating poverty and inequality.”
The Group Managing Director, Access Bank PLC, Dr Herbert Wigwe, also declared support for the cause, stating that the bank “strongly aligns with Global Citizen’s goals.”
The Global Citizen Live event will feature performances by Davido, Tiwa Savage, Made Kuti, and Femi Kuti, among others, hosted by local TV celebrities Ebuka Obi-Uchendu and Nancy Isime.
