Nigeria’s First E-Concert Going Down on Sunday
9 April 2020
By Cheloti Joshua
The first-ever E-Concert in Nigeria will be going down this Sunday in Lagos, Nigeria.
The event dubbed ‘Extra Special E-Concert’ seeks to raise funds to support the fight against Coronavirus.
Nigerian music icon 2Baba is the one organizing the event and has already pledged 10 million nairas.
For a few days now, 2Baba officially known as Innocent Ujah Idibia has been popularizing the E-Concert on his social media pages while counting down to the big day.
In one of the recent posts on Facebook, 2Baba said: Yes ooooo! 4 days to go!! First of it's kind extra special 2baba E-concert Join me on the 12th of April let's support the fight against this nonsense corona nonsense. Stream live as u stay at home and have a wonderful evening with me and @Trophystout Follow @Trophystout for more info.”
A few hours later, the singer who is also a Humanitarian and activist posted more details to the event while also revealing the host for the event that will be streamed live, now that gatherings have been suspended due to the fear of Coronavirus spread.
E-Concert host for the concert will be 2Baba’s wife who is also a Nigerian model, presenter and actress Annie Macaulay–Idibia.
“This Sunday, we bring the concert to your mobile devices. Follow @Trophystout IG page for more information #StayAtHome #BeSafe,” 2Baba captioned a poster that contained more details of the event.
Being an Easter weekend, and with the effect of Coronavirus, that is people being indoors, streaming the event on your phone will most likely kill the boredom.
