Adesope Olajide arrives in Ghana, fired up for Afronation Festival

Adesope Olajide has arrived in Ghana to complete preparations as host of the second edition of the annual AfroNation Africa Festival in Ghana.

The renowned afrobeats promoter, radio & TV broadcaster, and event personality will host the second edition of the African leg of the world’s biggest afrobeats festival, slated for December 29th and 30th at the iconic Black Star Square, Marine Drive, Accra. 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.

Adesope Olajide is a dynamic broadcaster and entertainment personality with a world of experience hosting sports and entertainment television/radio programmes, live events and panels. With over 15 years of media experience, he has been at the forefront of promoting African popular culture in the UK and one of the first personalities at the forefront pushing Afrobeats firstly on pirate radio stations before being accepted on mainstream radio and tv.

Over the last decade, Adesope, known as “Shopsydoo” & “The Energy Gawd”, has become one of the most prominent faces of African Entertainment in Europe and Africa. Aside from hosting the maiden edition of Afronation Africa Festival, Ghana, in 2019 at Laboma Beach, he has been the traditional Afronation Festival host, having travelled the world hosting various editions of the festival in Portugal and Puerto Rico.

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.
