Femi Kuti, Tiwa Savage, Wizkid and Dbanj have been listed to perform alongside Music super couple Beyoncé & Jay-Z, at Global Citizen Festival‘s Mandela 100 in Johannesburg, South Africa.

The free concert aimed at celebrating a hundred years since Nelson Mandela’s birth will hold on Dec. 2 at Johannesburg’s FNB stadium.

Bob Geldof, Naomi Campbell, Gayle King, Tyler Perry, Forest Whitaker and South African TV host Bonang Matheba will serve as hosts.

Other artistes lined up include Ed Sheeran Pharrell Williams, Coldplay’s Chris Martin, Usher, Casper Nyovest, Sho Madjozi, and Eddie Vedder.

Oprah Winfrey will also deliver a keynote address on Mandela’s legacy.

“Nelson Mandela did not care much for tributes; rather, he was concerned with action, results and impactful outcomes to ensure the restoration of the dignity of all the people of South Africa, Africa and the globe,” Global Citizen CEO Hugh Evans tells Rolling Stone.

“It is our hope that the Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100 drives leaders to pursue such action and results in the effort to end extreme poverty,” Evans adds.

“If we are able to achieve that, then we might be able to fulfil Mandela’s unfinished work and live up to being that ‘great generation’ he so desired and believed we were capable of being.”

“Nelson Mandela’s life story is a testament to the power of the human spirit and one man’s ability to change the world by standing up for what he believed in,” Oprah Winfrey added.

“It is one of the great honours of my life to have spent so much time with him, and I look forward to celebrating his courageous life.” (NAN)
