It’s another COACHELLA, and this time, some artistes decide to go back in time to honor past legends! Not only are they honoring, but they are also reuniting with former group members once again to perform. One such COACHELLA performer was Beyonce, and she wowed every Nigerian out there
The Coachella Performances
“The Coachella” is the Valley Music and Arts Festival hosted every year in California, USA. The Festival is named after the place where it’s annually held – the Inland Empire’s Coachella Valley. Specifically located in the Colorado Desert.
And this year’s Festival celebration began with a bang, and a tribute to a few Nigerian Celebs – living and dead.
