Beyonce pays tribute to Fela on stage at Coachella, Nigerians slam Wizkid for missing his performance
Famous American musician Beyonce is currently trending online because of her performance at ongoing music festival Coachella.
The mum of three gave a two hour performance that many are calling the best in the history of Coachella. She even earned plaudits from a lot of Nigerians.
This is because she paid homage to late Nigerian musician and progenitor of Afrobeats Fela Anikulapo Kuti. Her band played excerpts of abami eda’s song during her act. Watch a video below:
She also brought out members of her now-defunct group Destiny’s child as well as her husband Jay Z. See them below:
Meanwhile, popular Nigerian musician Wizkid was severely slammed on social media because he could not make it to America to perform at Coachella.
We earlier reported that Starboy was slated to perform at the world renowned music festival but new details reveal because of visa issues, he will be performing at a later date.
