Kojo Manuel goes international again as he is set to host Afrochella show in South Africa


South African artists Focalistic, Daliwonga and Young Stunna will headline the concert slated for 30th October. They will be joined by Ghanaian artists Stonebwoy and Gyakie as well as locals Nirvana Nokwe, Venom & Shishiliza, Uncle Party Time, DJ Pizaro and DJ Loft.

The announcement was made by Culture Management Group (CMG) as an experiential pop-up event designed to introduce and highlight Afrochella in the sub-Saharan market. The Road to Afrochella will be held ahead of Afrochella 2022 which will be headlined by Burna Boy and Stonebwoy in Accra, Ghana, from 28 and 29 December.

Afrochella has always been more than just a festival in Ghana and because of that we’re so excited to bring our ‘Road to Afrochella’ series to South Africa,” Afrochella CEO and co-founder Karim Abdullah said. “Through this pop-up event, we have the opportunity to bring our platform to other regions across Africa, help elevate their homegrown talent and design a unique cultural experience that merges the exciting worlds of fashion, art, music and food together.”

First held in 2017, Afrochella seeks to celebrate diverse African culture and showcase works by emerging creatives, artists and entrepreneurs across the continent. This year, the event will run under the theme AfroFuturism to reflect on the past, explore the future and create a progressive path for the present African diaspora.

Other activities on the day include a community mural-making project, face painting, henna application and more.
