The newly announced lineup includes appearances by Lupita Nyong'o, Alicia Keys, Oprah Winfrey, Pharrell Williams and Sam Smith.

They join an illustrious list that already included Burna Boy, David Beckham, John Legend and Stevie Wonder.

Leading up to the global broadcast special will be a six-hour streamed event curated from around the world. The streamed event will reach millions of people from different parts of the world , and will feature appearances and performances from Sho Madjozi, Black Coffee and Cassper Nyovest.

The digital stream will be available on various online platforms including Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Instagram and Amazon Prime Video.
