Kahera Travels positive on return of FESTAC 45 years after maiden edition
With the return of Festival of Black Arts and Culture (FESTAC) 45 years after, Chief Executive Officer of Kahera Travels, Kechi Richard-Sheidu, is confident that the event would introduce a new era for African arts and culture.
Kahera Travels, one of Tanzania’s travel and tourism partners, mentioned this in a statement issued to the press.
The historic festival was held in Lagos, Nigeria from January 15 to February 12th, 1977. It undoubtedly drew the attention of local and international music stars, celebrity artistes and cultural dance troups all around the world, who serenaded participants with their energetic vibes.
On the upcoming festival, Richard-Sheidu described FESTAC as a once-in-a-generation event. She also invited all art and culture to participate in this year’s jamboree.
Richard-Sheidu said: “The majority of us were either too young or had not yet been born the last time this event was held. I am overjoyed that the arts and culture festival is returning to our time.”
The festival, she noted, promises to be completely immersive and the stories will be passed down for generations to come.
For Kahera Travels boss, she urged prospective participants to take advantage of the seamless service Kahera Travels provides to its clients in Lagos and London.
