Chairman and CEO of EbonyLife TV, Mo Abudu stated
“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.”
“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.”
