May 25 is an important day on the African calendar – even more so this year, under the unusual conditions faced under the novel coronavirus pandemic. Now more than ever, Africans need to take up the challenges shared with each other and the world and apply creativity and experience to help develop African solutions. To celebrate Africa Day, ViacomCBS Networks Africa and YouTube, in partnership with Idris Elba, are hosting an Africa Day Benefit Concert At Home to raise funds to help children and families in Africa that are affected by the pandemic.
