Burna Boy is the only Nigerian musician on the lineup.
The newly announced artistes also include Black Coffee, Alicia Keys, Celine Dion, Ellen DeGeneres, Jennifer Lopez, Oprah Winfrey, Pharrell Williams, Usher, and Victoria Beckham.
Curated in collaboration with Lady Gaga, the artistes announced will join a lineup of entertainers who were unveiled last week.

One World: Together at Home is a broad global entertainment special to support the World Health Organization and the global fight to end COVID-19 through artistes who share music with their fans for a purpose.
It is also aimed at educating and informing millions of people about WHO’s critical efforts to prevent, detect and respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
