Tiwa Savage receives invitation to perform at coronation ceremony of King Charles III

Nigerian music sensation, Tiwa Savage, has received a once-in-a-lifetime invitation to perform at the coronation of King Charles III, the British monarch.


Scheduled to hold at Westminster Abbey in London on May 6, 2023, the event marks the official ascension of King Charles III and his Queen Consort, Camilla, to the throne following the passing of his mother, Queen Elizabeth II.

Tiwa Savage will join an impressive lineup of star-studded performers, including Steve Winwood, DJ Pete Tong, Lang Lang, Lucy, Paloma Faith, and Olly Murs, who will provide entertainment during the coronation concert and Big Lunch on May 7, 2023.


Tiwa’s invitation is a remarkable achievement, as she becomes the first Nigerian musician to receive this honour.

The organizers revealed their selection with the message:


“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,” the statement read.

The coronation event will be a part of a festival that will feature a range of street parties across the UK and a volunteering campaign.


This will undoubtedly be a momentous occasion for Tiwa Savage, and her performance is sure to be a highlight of the event.

Tiwa Savage is one of Africa’s most popular and successful musicians, known for her unique sound that blends Afrobeat, R&B, and pop.

She has won numerous awards and nominations, including the MTV Africa Music Award for Best Female twice and was the first African female artist to sign a global deal with Universal Music Group.


This invitation to perform at King Charles III’s coronation is a significant milestone in Tiwa Savage’s career and further cements her status as one of Africa’s leading musicians.

We can’t wait to see her light up the stage and represent Nigeria on this historic occasion.


This achievement is no small feat for Tiwa Savage, who has had a successful music career spanning over a decade.

With several hit songs and collaborations with both local and international artists, Tiwa has established herself as one of Nigeria’s biggest music exports.
