Seun Kuti Emerges Only Nigerian Artist On Coachella 2020 Lineup (Full list)
A full list of artistes scheduled to perform at the 2020 edition of the Coachella Valley Music has been announced, and Seun Kuti is the only Nigerian on the list.
Seun Kuti will be performing alongside members of Egypt ’80, his late father’s band at the two weekends event which will hold in April.
This is coming a year after two Nigerian superstar artistes, Burna Boy and Mr Eazi took the center stage at the 2019 edition of the music festival.

Coachella, which holds annually at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California, is one of the most famous and profitable music festivals in the United States and all over the world.
In 2019, Burna Boy had made headlines after he criticized its organizers for writing his name in small fonts — a move which put him in the global spotlight as an Afrocentric music star.
After the backlash that ensued, Burna dubbed himself an ‘African giant’, arguing that his Nigerian critics do so because they’re”not mentally advanced enough to fight for themselves.”
Coachella 2020 will take place on the weekends of April 10-12 and April 17-19 at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California.
