Afronation Ghana is unarguably the biggest and most famous afrobeats music festival in the world, uniting over 100,000 attendees from across the world under the Ghanaian weather for two nights of vibrant mix of afropop, afrobeats, dancehall and reggae. With a unique storytelling and incredibly produced attractive stages, it offers a wide selection of afrobeats subgenres, divided into multiple areas and stages.
Founded to unite the diaspora in celebration of Black Joy, the event is back for a celebratory trip of Black culture, vibing music, dance, good food, and so much more. Ready to turn the end of the year into an unforgettable party, this highly anticipated next edition of Afro Nation is set to follow up the 2019 landmark African debut in style.
The Afrobeats explosion continues to grow, uniting the diaspora on culturally significant sites across three continents, with Afro Nation at the center of it all. Afro Nation Ghana follows this summer’s hugely successful Portugal Beach Festival and the first US show in Puerto Rico in March. Afro Nation Ghana now welcomes thousands of people from the global diaspora who are returning home to celebrate the New Year with friends and family in West Africa’s most exciting cultural hub.
Afro Nation Ghana’s festival is scheduled for Marine Drive, Black Star Square on 29th & 30th December 2022.
Grammy Award-nominated rapper Meek Mill is the first American artist to join the bill, having collaborated with fellow Afro Nation Ghana 2022 headliner Davido on the single ‘Fans Mi’ in 2015. This Ghana debut is a long-awaited moment for both Meek Mill and his many Ghanaian fans, and it makes this year’s Afro Nation all the more unmissable.
Meek Mill is joined by Nigerian Afrobeats singer Asake. An artist clearly destined for greatness, Asake brings his vibrant and hotly-tipped brand of “Street-Pop” to the centre of Accra, with global favourites like ‘Bandana’ set to steal the show. Featuring heavily in both the recently launched Billboard US Afrobeats Chart and the Official UK Afrobeats Chart right now, Asake is firmly on the rise.
An impressive lineup of today’s hottest names, including Meek Mill and Asake, has already been revealed for the festival’s big return. Stonebwoy is joined by Nigerian party king Davido, the legendary duo P-Square, Rema, Dadju, CKay, Adekunle Gold, Black Sherif, and Ghana’s brightest new stars Kuami Eugene, KiDi, Gyakie, and Camidoh.
Afro Nation Ghana also features all of the leading Amapiano artists, including Major League DJz, Uncle Waffles, Kamo Mphela, and DJ Maphorisa and Kabza De Small’s collaborative project Scorpion Kings, which brings the hottest sounds of the South African underground to the world.
