Beyonce, Jay Z, more to perform in Johannesburg for Mandela 100 concert

Mandela 100 Global Citizen concert brings Beyonce, Jay Z to South Africa this December

This is not a drill: Beyonce is coming to Johannesburg on 2 December. And so is Jay Z, D’banj, Ed Sheeran, Eddie Vedder, Femi Kuti, Pharrell Williams, Chris Martin, Tiwa Savage, Usher and Wizkid. They’ll be joining Cassper Nyovest and Sho Madjozi at the Mandela 100 edition of the Chris Martin’s Global Citizen festival.

Just like all the Global Citizen festivals the world over, fans will need to earn tickets by doing good i.e. performing social advocacy in their communities.

The Mandela 100 Festival, in partnership with the House of Mandela, will serve as the capstone event of Global Citizen’s year-long Be the Generation campaign, inspired by the revered former leader of South Africa and his lifelong dedication to rallying people together to use their collective voices to speak for the most marginalised people.
