Naira Marley fixes online concert for Saturday May 30th

Mad o! Naira Marley has fixed an online concert for Saturday May 30th to entertain his fans.

He was prevented from making his debut at the popular music and culture festival, Gidi Fest in April, due to the coronavirus pandemic and now a free online concert for Marlian Day has been scheduled for Saturday, May 30.

According to a statement made available by the organisers, “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 front line workers making personal sacrifices daily on behalf of Nigeria and humanity.”

Since the coronavirus upended music tours and concerts, many musicians have turned to social media and online platforms to create experiences and connect with fans. Notable examples include Canadian rapper Tory Lanez’s Live social distancing tour earlier this month, and Andrea Bocelli’s Music for Hope: Live from the Duomo in Milan. In the same vein, Naira Marley will be bringing the live concert experience from an iconic monument in Lagos to his fans at home.
