Afrochella Festival 2022: Burna Boy And Stonebwoy Make Headliners
Burna Boy and Stonebwoy were named by Management Group as the headliners for Afrochella Festival 2022. On December 28 and 29, this historic event will take place at El Wak Stadium in Accra, Ghana.
The two-day music festival also features Kidi, Medikal, Ayra Starr, DJ Juls, and DJ Loft in addition to over 50 vendors, including 15 businesses specialising in fashion, beauty, and the arts.
The word “AfroFuturism,” which was coined to honour the both past and present of the African diaspora and to offer a positive vision on the future of the next generation, serves as the theme for this year’s festival.
Abdul Karim Abdullah, CEO & Co-Founder of Afrochella said,“As we embark on another year of celebrating African culture, Afrochella will bring “Afrofuturism” to life through our core elements of music, art, fashion and food. We will explore the endless possibilities of what “Afrofuturism” could look like in 2022 and beyond.”
This year’s festival will have 35 food vendors serving dishes from all around the continent and introduce guests to “Afrocanteen,” an exclusive dining experience unlike any other.
The Afrochella Expo at Afrochella House will start on December 18 and last until December 31 before the festival’s musical portion. Wellness seminars, films, and panel discussions on topics including culture, technology, health, sustainability, music, and art will all be a part of this totally immersive experience. Events like the Rising Star Challenge, Fashion Night Out, The New Year’s Celebration x PVO, and many others are open to creatives from all over the world.
Afrochella’s COO and co-founder, Kenny Agyapong Jr., remarked that organisers have the exciting task of attracting 20,000 tourists to Ghana this year, as it is one of the most cherished cultural events there. “We plan to not only achieve this goal but to make Ghana the premier destination for all travelers around the world.”
