One Africa Music Fest, presented by Upfront & Personal, is set to hit the U.S. for the first time this July.
The event which will be hosted by Africa’s R&B King Banky Wwill see live performances from Africa’s biggest musical stars such as BET Award winners and International stars Wizkid, Davido, Stonebwoy, Diamond Platnumz, Flavour, Tiwa Savage, Iyanya, and Banky W himself.
Speaking on why they’re putting on the show, CEO of Upfront and Personal, Paul O said, “After storming the music trends in Africa and Europe, I felt the timing was right to put Afro beats and Afro pop on the main stage in the U.S. It’s slowly been hitting the underground scene for a while, but with the current collaborations with artists like Drake, Meek Mill, Wale, and Future, amongst others. We just had to do it.”
