The Africa Day Benefit Concert at Home presented by YouTube & ViacomCBS Networks Africa in partnership with Idris Elba will feature the biggest names in African music along with global superstar presenters to celebrate Africa Day. The Africa Day Benefit Concert at Home will be a 2-hour special that will broadcast to millions of viewers in Africa and around the world on MTV and BET at 7pm.
The two-hour special aims to not only entertain viewers at home but also raise funds that will support food and health needs of children and families in Africa affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. All proceeds pre and post the virtual concert will be directed to the World Food Programme and UNESCO who have joined forces in support of those most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We’re excited to celebrate Africa month as a continent, and there’s no better way to celebrate our beautiful and vibrant continent than with music, the one universal language. Viewers can enjoy their favorite artist in the comfort of their home”, says Cecil Sunkwa Mills, MD MultiChoice Ghana. The Humanitarian concert which will be hosted by Hollywood superstar Idris Elba will feature star-studded special appearances from Trevor Noah and performances from African legends, Salifu Keita, Angelique kidjo, Ladysmith Black Mombazo, and Ismael Lo, together with some of the most talented artists across the continent.
