Nigerian artist Rema was supposed to have a one-time concert Thursday night but will be performing this Friday evening in Israel, a local media said.
This is seen as his first performance in Israel following an outcry from the African Israeli community, which make up much of Nigerians.
The Nigerian artist will hit the stage with 15 other singers, rappers, and dancers for a one-time live performance.
Israel is the last stop on Rema’s world tour, which has been running since May.
The 23-year-old Divine Ikubor has risen to the top of the charts for his song “Calm Down,” released in 2022 both as a solo and then again with American acting-singing sensation Selena Gomez.
Rema’s song peak at Number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 list after it came out, and at Number 1 on the Billboard Hot International list.
It remained the leading Afrobeats song in the US for just under a year.
Rema who announced details of his world tour some months ago, also included Israel as one of the countries he will visit.
