Nigerian music to the world is what 2018 is surely going to be about.
Thanks to Jidenna representing the nation so well and all the collaborations that went down last year between Nigerian artistes and other international acts.
However, this year is already shaping up for the Nigerian Music industry as Wizkid and Jidenna are already slated to play at one of the biggest world music festivals – Coachella that holds in California.
The official lists for artistes to perform were released earlier this morning through the event’s official Twitter handle. This is not to say that artistes to perform cannot change, considering that King Sunny Ade was billed to perform last year but was later dropped. However, this is the first time two Nigerian acts will be slated to play in the same year at the festival.
Wizkid is to play on Saturday, April 14 and/or 21, while Jidenna is to play on Sunday, April 15 and/or 22. They will be performing alongside headliners like Beyonce, Eminem and The Weekend. Other notable mentions are Kygo, SZA, Post Malone, Tyler the Creator, Cardi B, Miguel, and over 200 other artistes. Tickets for the event are to go on sale on the 5th of January.
