"One of the key things we are trying to galvanise is that sense of renewal and the excitement around getting involved and engaging with communities around issues that we can bring to an end‚ such as poverty,” organisers said.
Oprah will deliver the keynote address at the festival where she will remember Madiba and his legacy. Stars from across Africa will also be at the festival with Cassper Nyovest‚ D'banj‚ Femi Kuti and Wizkid all set to perform.
"Nelson Mandela taught South Africans and the world so much about how to challenge our leaders and change the future. I’m inspired to join Global Citizen and celebrate his legacy. Viva Mandela!"
Global Citizen Hugh Evans explains at a media briefing held at the Sandton Convention Centre on Monday July 9 2018 how people can obtain a ticket to the Global Citizen concert that will be hosted on December 2 2018 at FNB Stadium in Johannesburg.
