Controversial musician, Naira Marley, has announced a free online concert for Marlian Day.
The “Tesumole” crooner made this known in a statement released on Monday. The e-concert themed ‘Gidi Fest’ is expected to hold on May 30.
“Marlian Day celebrates our liberty and our resilience through the daily challenges we face in Nigeria and most recently during the COVID-19 crisis. Most especially the heroic frontline workers making personal sacrifices daily on behalf of Nigeria and humanity.
“Naira Marley shows an early indication of the festival’s London-Lagos connection and there is a natural synergy between his fans, Marlians and The Gidi Tribe. They are the new African generation who refuse to take no for an answer and are challenging the status quo to uplift themselves and push forward. His adaptability, controversial lyrics and autonomy has made him one of the most sought-after artists in Africa,” the statement said.
concert is scheduled to begin at 6.30 and end at 7.30pm.
Fans can watch the one-hour live concert on Marley’s YouTube channel and Gidi Fest Facebook page.
The show, which is produced by Eclipse Live, is a collaboration between Gidi Fest and Marlian Music.
