Afro Nation, a festival created to celebrate the richness of African music and by extension, the diverse culture in the continent. It was first held in Puerto Rico on August 1 2019 before touring Europe, North America, and a grand touchdown in Ghana last year. Finally, Afro Nation is coming to the home of Afrobeats, Nigeria!
Afro Nation’s first Nigerian edition is taking place in the founding city of the reckoned genre, Lagos. On December 19 and 20 this year, various countries’ citizens converge at the Tafawa Balewa Square to celebrate the traveling fest. Tickets are on sale, and the list of performers is getting unveiled in bits.
African Giant, Burna Boy, and his frequent collaborator, J Hus, make history as the debut co-headliners of Afro Nation Nigeria. Since Afro Nation is a 2-day festival, one can presume Burna and Hus will share the task of headlining equally between themselves, taking one day each.
Aside from the headliners, Seyi Vibez, Flavour, and Black Sherif have been confirmed as performers. While we wait for the confirmation of other performing acts and headliners, we know attendees will be thrilled by ecstatic performances from these acts.
Knowing how vast the discography of both headliners is, one can guess they will perform for at least one hour and thirty minutes (if allowed). Regardless, TBS, Lagos is the place to be on Dec. 9 and 10 if you wish to witness greatness.
