Harrysong to hold peace concert in Niger Delta
Popular Nigerian artiste and Gala ambassador, Harrison Tare Okiri, popularly known as Harrysong, says he has concluded arrangements to hold a peace concert in Asaba, Delta state.
Harrysong said on Friday in Abuja that the concert titled; “One Delta Harrysong Peace Concert’’ was part of efforts to restore peace to the Niger Delta region.
“I suspended the release of my album to do this concert because of what is happening in the Niger Delta right now. I plan to use this concert to restore peace to Niger Delta amidst the recent happenings in that part of the country,’’ he said.
He also stated that he would not be performing alone as some of his colleagues in the musical industry would be supporting the peace movement.
“I won’t be performing alone, but alongside some of my colleagues in the likes of Patoranking, Sheyi Shay, Timaya, Olamide, Orezi, K-Cee, and many more. The concert promises to be a unique one as we plan to use our talents to restore peace to our dear country. So fans, I can’t wait to see you all. Thanks for your endless support! God bless Niger Delta and God bless our country Nigeria,’’ he said.
He also encouraged the youth to think carefully before taking any action, rather than the other way round. The concert is scheduled to hold on July 31.
