VIDEO: Burna Boy stars in world's first virtual concert for coronavirus health workers

BurnaBoy mocks Nigerian youths after Accountant General's office was gutted by fire

Multiple award winning Nigerian singer, Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, known professionally as Burna Boy, was among A-lister musicians that participated in the World's first virtual concert Saturday night to celebrate health workers, as billions shelter at home due to coronavirus.

Wearing a dark gray top and slacks, the Nigerian singer-songwriter performed his songs "African Giant" and "Hallelujah" as imagery with examples of relief efforts and preventative measures appeared on the screen. Citizens were seen being tested with infrared thermometers, employing sanitation methods in public spaces, and setting up emergency food markets.

The concert had singers from The Rolling Stones to Taylor Swift to Billie Eilish.

Lizzo, Jennifer Lopez, Stevie Wonder, Paul McCartney and LL Cool J also joined in the Lady Gaga-curated online party.

The show was backed by the international advocacy organisation Global Citizen in partnership with the World Health Organisation.

Before opening the show Lady Gaga — who began working with Global Citizen and the WHO weeks ago to fundraise for the battle against COVID-19 — said she was praying for medical workers and also "thinking of all of you that are at home, who are wondering when this is all going to be different."
