Tiwa Savage, a well-known Nigerian musician, has been invited to sing at King Charles III of Britain’s approaching coronation.
The historic event is slated to occur in Westminster Abbey in London on Saturday, May 6, 2023.
Tiwa Savage will be joining a star-studded list of performers who are scheduled to entertain attendees at the coronation concert and Big Lunch on Sunday, May 7, 2023. These performers include Steve Winwood, DJ Pete Tong, Lang Lang, Lucy, Paloma Faith, and Olly Murs.
Following the passing of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, the coronation ceremony signifies the official ascension of the monarch, King Charles III, and his Queen Consort, Camilla, to the throne.
Since Tiwa Savage is the first musician from Nigeria to receive this honor, her invitation to play at the coronation is a remarkable accomplishment.
Tiwa Savage was picked as one of the historic coronation concert’s few African performers, according to a statement issued by the organizers.
“We are excited to announce that Tiwa Savage will be performing at the coronation concert alongside other world-class musicians. Tiwa Savage is an exceptional artiste with a unique blend of African and Western sounds. We are confident that her performance will add colour and excitement to the event,” the statement read.
A volunteering effort will be undertaken in conjunction with a variety of street parties around the UK as part of the celebrations.
