Nigerian Afro-beats superstar Tiwa Savage will sing at a concert to celebrate British monarch King Charles III’s coronation at the Windsor Castle in Berkshire on 7 May.

King Charles III, the eldest son of Queen Elizabeth II ascended to the British throne immediately after the passing of his mother in September 2022.
Charles will be officially crowned king at the event that will be broadcast live on BBC channels.
Tiwa, a legendary singer known of her hit ‘Somebody’s Son’ will join several international artists invited to perform at the event including Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and and South African opera singer Pretty Yende among others.
“I look forward to joining the celebrations and bringing Afrobeats to Windsor Castle for the first time,” Savage said to the BBC after her nomination.

Her nomination for the event has been greeted with mixed reactions at home, according to media reports.

While some believe her performance is a progressive spotlight for Afrobeats, others have taken to social media to register disappointment with the singer, calling her hypocritical given Britain’s colonial legacy in Nigeria.
