He said, “Nigeria is the home to so many international superstars who have made Afrobeats a globally loved genre.
“As someone who grew up in Lagos, and then spent years promoting African music in London and beyond, this will truly be a full circle moment, bringing the Afro Nation show back home to Lagos.
“We can’t wait for the biggest celebration of African music the world has ever seen,” he said.
According to him, the festival will be coming up in Portugal in June, before returning to America for a two-day show in Detroit between Aug. 19 and Aug. 20.
He said for more details, fans should sign up for news and have the first opportunity to get tickets to Afro Nation Nigeria.
