HarrySong’s single is one of the dozens of tribute songs released in the aftermath of Mandela’s passing. Harrysong’s tribute is being offered for free for now. Dozens of Nigerian musicians will gather on Wednesday for a massive tribute concert in honour of the late freedom hero.
According to official figures released today, Harrysong’s single, available solely on MTN (which has over 56 million subscribers and is Nigeria’s dominant telecoms player) has recorded over 2million callertunes download so far. And pundits say the rising singer’s cut has ‘smashed all records’.
