The Afrochella experience can not be described; one would have to be there to understand the depth, effort, thought, and dedicated planning that goes into creating a cultural celebration of African fashion, art, food, and most importantly, music. At last year’s event, dubbed Made In Africa, international superstars such as Wizkid, Ayra Starr, King Promise, Amaarae, Ari Lennox, Nasty C, and Stonebwoy graced the main stage, displaying their craft in full effect. This year, under the theme Afrofuturism, the African Giant himself, Burna Boy, has been named as the headlining act for the highly anticipated festival.
Hosted by Kojo Manuel since its inception, the award-winning MC has been approached once again, to raise the bar a bit higher, for the 5th anniversary of the festival which celebrates and uplifts Black creators.
Although Afrochella didn’t take place in 2020 due to COVID-19, the Afrochella Block Party, on a smaller scale, happened in honor of the festival. Afrochella: Afrofuturism, is slated for 28-29 December, and will see performances from Stonebwoy, Fireboy DML, Kidi, Ayra Starr, Medikal, AD DJ, DJ Loft, and DJ Juls.
