One of the biggest if not the biggest artist to grace the just concluded Global Citizen in Johannesburg South Africa, Beyonce Knowles has a few hours ago, revealed that the total funds raised so far to end extreme poverty in the world, especially in Africa, now stand at $7.1billion dollars.
Beyonce who was in Africa alongside husband JayZ and members of her family put out one of the greatest shows on the African continent, and was joined on stage with the likes of Wizkid, Tiwa Savage, and others for the Global Citizen show, has expressed her gratitude to everyone that has contributed to the initiative.
Beyonce put up the post, thanking everyone for the amazing show, and the contribution. She said:
“After settling in at home from a beautiful trip to South Africa and India, I am still in awe that 7.1 BILLION dollars was raised to aid Global Citizen in its efforts to eradicate extreme poverty.
I’d like to give my praise and respect to all the speakers, performers, and volunteers who donated their time to contribute to making positive change. Every person in the audience at FNB Stadium earned a seat because they generously donated their time to help their community. Now their efforts and the money raised will help improve education, healthcare, sanitation, women’s rights, and countless other causes for millions across the globe.
I felt so much positivity and pride in the audience at Global Citizen: Mandela 100. Madiba, Johannesburg, and all of my African sisters and brothers, we hope we made you as proud as you all make us. South Africa was an extraordinary trip for me and my family. God bless.
