Nigeria’s legendary singer, Femi Kuti, has been penciled down to perform at the opening ceremony of 2019 African Nations Cup tournament scheduled to kick off on Friday, June 21, in Egypt.
Femi is expected to join two other music stars from Egypt and Cote d’ Ivore, Hakim and Dobet Gnahore, to perform and herald the opening ceremony.
Having expanded the tournament from 16 to 24 nations, it is expected to be bigger and more exciting this year.
The Confederation of African Football, on their Twitter handle, confirmed Kuti’s participation in the ceremony.
“Nigeria’s Afrobeat singer Kuti will perform in English, whiles Hakim and Dobet Gnahoré perform in Arabic and French respectively.
“The three international musicians will sing “Metgamaeen” (We Are Together) produced by Synergy together on stage in Cairo, Egypt,” CAF tweeted.
