Nigerian singer and songwriter, Tiwa Savage, has been announced as one of the musicians set to perform at the coronation ceremony of King Charles III. She will perform alongside artistes like Katy Perry, Lang Lang, Paloma Faith, Lionel Richie, Andrea Bocelli, Sir Bryn Terfel, Freya Ridings, and many others. The event, produced by BBC Studios Productions, is scheduled for 7th May 2023 at the Windsor Castle grounds, England. The much-anticipated ceremony makes Savage the first Nigerian artiste to perform at a foreign royal coronation ceremony.

In a statement released by the organisers, they stated, We are excited to announce that Tiwa Savage will be performing at the coronation concert alongside other world-class musicians. Tiwa Savage is an exceptional artiste with a unique blend of African and Western sounds. We are confident that her performance will add colour and excitement to the event.” Asides from the concert set to entertain attendees, there would also be a series of street parties that will take place throughout the country and a volunteering campaign called “The Big Help Out” created to encourage community service.

Speaking to the BBC, the Nigerian singer-songwriter expressed her gratitude for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “It’s truly an honour to represent Africa and the Commonwealth at such a historical event. I look forward to joining the celebrations and bringing Afrobeats to Windsor Castle for the first time.”

Compared with previous coronations, the ceremony will undergo some alterations to represent multiple faiths, cultures, and communities across the United Kingdom and will be shorter than his mother’s coronation in 1953. The ceremony will begin with the anointing of King Charles, symbolising his spiritual entry into kingship, and then his crowning and enthronement, representing his assumption of temporal powers and responsibilities. The coronation at Westminster Abbey and the concert at Windsor Castle will be broadcast on television and streamed online.
