We are all Global Citizens, and together, we can end extreme poverty. In just four days, tens of thousands of us are gathering in Johannesburg with @wizkidayo – and tuning in from around the world – to stand up for freedom, equality, and justice.

The album is curated by Coldplay‘s Chris Martin who last year gave Tiwa Savage and her EP “Sugarcane” a shoutout.
South African artist Cassper Nyovest will also feature on the Global Citizen EP, and all the artists will perform at the Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100, along with Femi Kuti, Beyonce, Black Coffee, Ed Sheeran, D’Banj and JAY-Z, on December 2.
All the songs take their inspiration from Nelson Mandela‘s fight for racial equality, and the proceeds from the EP will go to the fight for gender equality, education, clean water, and more.
