Wizkid will play as the headline artiste at this year’s edition of the Afrochella music festival, announced the event organizers.
The famed African music carnival hosted in Accra, Ghana, will return in December after being postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak and its anticipated recurrence in the autumn. The theme for this year’s concert is “Made in Africa.” Afrochella Festival 2021 will take place with a series of activities culminating in a giant extravaganza on December 28th from midday to late at the El Wak Stadium in Accra, Ghana.
“In the last five years, we’ve made a significant impact on Ghana and its surrounding communities through our Afrochella events,” says Abdul Karim Abdullah, CEO & Co-Founder of Afrochella. “This year, we’re thrilled to return to El Wak Stadium with Wizkid to celebrate our fifth anniversary and to support the revitalization of Ghana’s travel & hospitality industry. We look forward to welcoming travellers back to the country to once again safely enjoy live events.”
This year’s event will include other elements such as Afrochella Rising Star Challenge, Afrochella Music Museum: Exhibition History of Ghana, Scarecrow Art Installation, African Fashion Night Out in Collaboration with Debonair Afrikk, Afrochella Runway – Exhibition Space for Ghanaian Fashion Designers, Amapiano & Brunch and Afrochella Talks.
