As the world mourns the passing of the late African and global icon,
Nelson Mandela, Nigerian stars and other production partners, in
collaboration with EbonyLife TV, Africa’s first Global Black
Entertainment Network, have initiated and concluded plans for an
unprecedented and star-studded tribute, titled “The Legacy Lives … A
Tribute Concert”, in celebration of the extraordinary life and times of
the legendary freedom fighter, nation builder, liberator, humanitarian,
democrat, unity promoter, instrument of change, philanthropist, Nobel
Peace Prize winner, the first democratically elected black South African
President and an inspiration to leadership for the rest of the world.


Headline acts for the concert include Dbanj, Tuface, Darey, Burna Boy,
Ikechukwu, Eldee the Don, Zaina, Mo Easy, Engager, Chioma, DJ Babus,
Timi Dakolo, Waje, Julius Agwu, Mike Aremu, J. Martins, Niyola,

Production partners for the tribute include Beat FM, Eko Hotel, Maverick

Events, GQ Acoustics, No Surprises Events, Pisces Power, Edi Lawani,
Prive, South African Airlines, Discovery Brands Management, Damell
Photography and K-Square.

The commemorative event, which is scheduled to hold on December 18,
2013, at The Oceanview Restaurant, Victoria Island, Lagos, promises to
be a very befitting and groundbreaking honour in memory of the
extraordinary life and unselfish contributions of one of the greatest
beacons of hope, inspiration and freedom to ever walk the surface of
this earth.

According to Funmi Victor-Okigbo, Chief Executive Officer, No Surprises
Events, “We’ll ensure that the event is orchestrated and executed to
perfection according to world-class standards.”

For Mo Abudu, Chairman and CEO of EbonyLife TV, “It’s one of the least
of things we can do as Nigerians, Africans and Global Black citizens of
the world to honour a unique, caring and very humble global character.”
Mo Abudu
She continues, “Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela lives on as a beacon of hope
and a true icon of inspiration; a man of extraordinary vision who has
left such a great legacy of humanity that Africans and the rest of the
world must strive to aspire to. So we are indeed very proud to put this
together. It’s a free concert for the expensive price of liberty paid
for by the selfless Madiba. We made a call to the industry and we got
really tremendous response. For all our music stars and partners, we
cannot thank you all enough for your sacrifice, kindness and generosity,
which themselves typify the spirit of ‘Ubuntu’, which is South African
for humanity. God bless you all.”

There is already a groundswell of activity and anticipation about the
event which already has everything it takes to go down into history as a
major rallying point for the celebration of the life and legacy of the
man, The Madiba.
