Accra, Ghana - AFROFUTURE, formerly known as Afrochella, is set to bring together members and enthusiasts of the African diaspora for a two-day extravaganza in Accra on December 28 and 29. The festival has announced a stellar lineup, featuring Afrobeats sensation Davido, UK rapper J Hus, and Ghanaian MC Black Sherif as headliners, according to Rolling Stone. Last year's event featured renowned acts like Burna Boy, Asake, Ayra Starr, and Fireboy DML.



The December season, often dubbed DETTY DECEMBER in West Africa, is known for drawing travelers and revelers to the region for festivities. In addition to the musical performances, AfroFuture has curated a diverse program of activities encompassing art, fashion, and food. This year's overarching theme is "Black Unification & Pan Africanism."



Beginning on December 18, the festival will kick off a two-week expo featuring wellness sessions, screenings, panel discussions, an entrepreneurial pitch competition in collaboration with Pharrell Williams' non-profit Black Ambition, a film competition, and a community service day.



Co-founder and CEO Abdul Karim Abdullah emphasized the festival's broader purpose, stating, "AfroFuture has always been more than just a festival; it's a full-circle celebration of everything African – our culture, our people, our talents, and serves as a platform for us to appreciate and acknowledge the larger contributions we make in the world."



Davido, a prominent figure in Nigerian pop music, recently released his fourth album, Timeless, which prominently incorporates amapiano influences and gave rise to the hit Unavailable J Hus, known for popularizing the UK genre Afroswing, blending elements of hip-hop and Afrobeats, also unveiled an album this summer titled Beautiful and Brutal Yard, featuring the catchy dance track Who Told You, featuring Drake.



Black Sherif, a rising star, has gained notoriety with drill-influenced rap tracks such as Second Sermon and Kweku the Traveller, the latter earning the Number 7 spot on Rolling Stone's list of the best Afropop songs of 2022. Additionally, Black Sherif recently secured the BET Hip-Hop Award for Best International Flow.


This year's festival promises to celebrate the unification of the Africa race and Pan Africanism through a star-studded lineup and a diverse range of activities.
