Afro Nation, an annual three-day music festival is once again set to bring together the best African artist in Afrobeats, Hip Hop, RnB, Dancehall, Amapiano, and more.

Founded in 2019 by Live Nation, SLE – Sociedade Lusa de Espectáculos and Event Horizon, this prestigious event, will not just bring talents together, but many will be honored for their outstanding contributions to the creative industry.

The festival was nominated in the Best Overseas Festival category at the 2019 UK Festival Awards.

2024 Afro Nation festival

Rema, Asake, and Nicki Minaj are among the headliners billed to rock the stage in the 2024 Afro Nation festival, set to hold from June 26 to 28 in Algarve Portimao, Portugal.

The organisers, via a post on X on Monday, unveiled the three music stars along with a list of notable artistes slated to perform at the event.

The organisers wrote, “#ANP2024 phase 2 is here!! 🇵🇹🎶 The Queen of Rap, @Nickiminaj will turn Portimão, Pink with an amazing performance!! 🎀 💗.”

The lineup features Omah Lay, Flavour, Odumodublvck, Seyi Vibez, Tyla, J Hus,  Diamond Platnumz,  The Composerz, and Tyler ICU amongst others .

Desired quality

Afro Nation, an annual celebration of Africans in the diaspora, stands out as one of the largest global music concerts.

Last year, the organisers canceled the inaugural Nigeria concert scheduled at Tafawa Balewa Square on December 19 and 20.

They cited the impossibility of delivering a show of the desired quality as the reason for their action.

The organiser, however, did not provide details for the cancellation.
They wrote, “As disappointed as we are that we won’t be coming to Lagos this year, we want our homecoming show to be up to the standards you deserve. We’ll be back soon, bigger and better!”
