Naira Marley, who is referred to as the president of Marlians, made the announcement on Monday.
According to him, the online concert, which will be the first of its kind for the artiste during the lockdown, is being organised to celebrate the resilience of Nigerians during the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
He said: “Marlian Day celebrates our liberty and our resilience through the daily challenges we face in Nigeria and most recently during the COVID-19 crisis.
“Most especially the heroic frontline workers making personal sacrifices daily on behalf of Nigeria and humanity.”
Naira Marley said will be bringing the live concert experience to his fans at home from 6:30 to 7:30 pm.
To be a part of the concert, fans are required to subscribe to the singer’s YouTube channel and Gidi Fest’s Facebook page.
His live online concert will feature his hit tracks ‘Soapy’, ‘Tesumole’, and Marlians anthem ‘Opotoyi’.
It will also feature appearances from special guests WurlD and Zlatan alongside Marlian Music artists, Zinolesky, Moh Bad, and Cblvck.
The year 2019 was unarguably Naira Marley’s breakout year as his no-belt-wearing ‘Marlian’ fanbase turned out in droves for their self-appointed leader on his first-ever concert in Nigeria.
However, the singer is not a stranger to controversies, as he was arrested by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC)in May 2019 for alleged internet fraud.
