Global Citizen Festival Artists take Charity to a different level.

Global  Citizen  Festival  Artists  take  Charity  to  a  different  level.
@3musicnetworks

Over  the  weekend,  the  biggest  charity  music  festival  in  the  world  took  place  at  the  Black  Star  Square  –  The  Global  Citizen  Festival.  Ghanaians  experienced  pure  joy  from  watching  top-notch  performances  from  Stonebwoy,  Gyakie  and  Sarkodie,  interspaced  with  the  euphoria  of  witnessing  Usher,  Stormzy,  SZA  and  Tems  perform  live.  This  has  since  sparked  conversations  on  the  line-up  and  how  the  organizers  were  able  to  pull  this  off.  

 

 

The  main  aim  of  having  people  sign  up  for  the  festival  was  to  get  them  involved  in  the  fight  against  extreme  poverty.  In  a  statement  on  the  Global  Citizen  Festival  website  on  how  to  make  an  impact,  it  stated  “When  you  take  action,  you’re  fighting  for  a  world  free  from  extreme  poverty.  Global  citizens'  voices  influence  world  leaders  and  decision-makers,  and  contribute  to  shaping  our  world.”

 

 

In  our  #BigConversation  segment  on  Culture  Daily  with  the  Culture  Squad  this  morning,  CEO  of  EMY  Africa,  Kojo Soboh,  made  a  revelation. 

 

 

Speaking  on  the  efforts  of  Ghanaian  event  organizers  in  comparison  to  the  Global  Citizen  Festival  organizers  and  the  thought  process  of  getting  the  artists  to  perform  he  said,  “The  artists  have  to  appreciate  that  we  are  trying  –  we  are  not  there  yet  but  the  effort  is  there!  They  have  to  appreciate  it.  For  this  event,  they  didn’t  pay  the  artists  because  it's  charity.  They  didn’t  pay  them  but  they  provided  all  the  logistics  that  the  artists  need.”

 

 

“All  their  logistics  were  paid  for.  So  imagine  if  you  are  travelling  from  here,  your  team  and  everything  they  will  pay  for  it”,  he  added.  

 

 

The  Global  Citizen  Festival  brought  together  artists  and  world  leaders  to  pursue  the  #EndPovertyNow  agenda  centered  on  empowering  girls  and  women,  defending  the  environment  and  effecting  change.
