Seyi Tinubu, son of Bola Tinubu, president-elect, says the “Renewed Hope Concert” was put together to celebrate the youths who voted for his father.
The concert was held at the MKO Abiola National Stadium in Abuja on Thursday night.
Pasuma, Buju, Waje, Asake, Fireboy, Kcee, Timaya, Naira Marley, Tony Tetuila, and Seyi Vibes were among the artistes that performed at the event.
A statement quoted the younger Tinubu as saying that the concert was also geared at uniting the youths in the country.
“The concert is aimed at celebrating the bravery of Nigerian youths who gave in their time, talent and treasure towards the actualisation of success of the president-elect during the last presidential election,” he said.
“The concert in its entirety was aimed at unifying the Nigerian youth with one goal and one future and to intentionally involve other youths across political divides, that Nigeria is one irrespective of their religious, political or ethnic affiliation.”

He said the incoming administration would be “youth-centric right from inception till the end”.
On his part, Ameer Kashim, son of Kashim Shettima, vice-president-elect, and vice-chairman of the concert’s organising committee, said youth were the heroes of democracy.
Olusegun Dada, secretary of the organising committee, said the youths prevented the country’s democracy from being truncated.
“The Nigerian youths didn’t just go out to vote, but they defended our democracy from being truncated, so we have to celebrate with them,” Dada said.
“This is our own way of appreciating them.”
