Ghana signs a five-year deal to host Afro Nation – all you need to know

As part of the President’s visit to the United Kingdom, Ghana has entered into a mutual agreement with the organizers of the AfroNation to be hosted in the motherland for the next five years.

Afro Nation is the biggest urban music festival in Europe. The show was hosted in Ghana last December as part of the Year of Return festivities. Many artistes from the country and the continent were invited to perform on the Afro Nation stage.

The Year of Return Initiative brought many people from the diaspora to the country which brought major boost to the country’s economy.

The government of Ghana led by the President H.E Nana Addo-Dankwah has been impressed with the total impact of the Year of Return Initiative and the Afro Nation music festival.

Ghana will now host the Afro Nation festival for the next five year during the Christmas period.

Some people have questioned the need for the government to sign a contract with the organizers. However, other African countries i.e South Africa and Nigeria were also bidding to host the music festival.

With this agreement, Ghana has the exclusive right to host the Afro Nation music festival for the next five years in the continent as part of the “Beyond the Return” initiative by the government.
