As Nigeria will be marking its 60th independence year, three of the biggest artists in the country will also be performing in an exclusive virtual concert.
The concert has been scheduled for October 1, the day Nigerians will be marking their independence day.
During the concert that will be streamed live on the Coca-Cola Nigeria YouTube channel, Marvin Records golden boy Rema, Afropop star Yemi Alade and living legend 2Baba will be performing.
Part of the concert will see a record set in Nigeria "for the greatest number of people to ever sing a National Anthem at once".
"It’s going to be epic! Arise O Compatriots. Let the world hear us sing and celebrate in one voice. Let’s rep Naija like never before," read a statement on the Coca-Cola website.
"Arise O’ Compatriots! We’re celebrating our people, our culture, and our pride in being Naija! Be part of the celebrations with an exclusive virtual performance by @heisrema @official2baba @yemialadee & @cobhamsasuquo this October 1st, 10.30am! #NaijaLikeNeverBefore," the company added in a post on its official Twitter handle.
While confirming his participation in virtual concert, Rema rallied his fans to join him as Nigeria turns 60.
"This 1st October I will sing for #NaijaLikeNeverBefore. Join me to set the record for the largest number of people singing the National Anthem at the same time. 1st October, 10.30 AM, on the Coca- Cola Nigeria YouTube Channel," Rema tweeted a few days ago.
