Afrobeats superstars Burna Boy and Wizkid are set to headline the US’s first Afro Nation Festival, which, according to Ebony, will take place in Miami.
The magazine credits Variety with the report, saying the event, an annual celebration of music from across the African diaspora, has been called “the world’s biggest Afrobeats festival.”
Afro Nation Festival will be held at the Loan Depot Park in Miami on May 27, 2023 and May 28, 2023.
Other performers of the festival include Nigerian musicians Rema and Asake, dancehall artistes Beenie Man, CKay, BNXN, Dadj, and Black Sherif. Also, Franglish, Nelson Freitas, Gyakie, and Nissi, are slated to appear at the two-day event.
According to a statement, more performers will be added in the coming months.
Afro Nation, the magazine stated, has gained a reputation for being one of the premier music festivals across the globe. Last year, festivals were held in Puerto Rico, Ghana, and Portugal ,where 40,000 concert-goes were in attendance on the beaches of Portimão as Wizkid, Burna Boy and Megan Thee Stallion headlined the event.
