One of Nigeria’s performing artistes, Wizkid, will headline this year’s edition of the Afrochella music festival slated for December 28 at the El-Wak Stadium in Accra.
The Afrochella festival is a celebration of diverse cultures as well as the diverse works of African creatives and entrepreneurs.
It promises its guests an experience of art and creative activations from the continent, the celebration of African music, and the taste of premium and cultured cuisine.
