Afrobeats superstar, recording artist, producer, and philanthropist, Davido announced his ARE WE AFRICAN YET? (A.W.A.Y) Festival, a one-day music festival and cultural experience taking place at the State Farm Arena in Atlanta on November 18, 2022. The Festival was conceived to promote and foster cultural exportation and collaboration between Africa and the world. Davido’s level of collaboration with U.S based artists over the years has positioned him as a unique bridge between Africa and the world, a mantle that he has carried proudly.

The demand for African music, fashion and culture worldwide has restored a sense of pride to Africans everywhere with most yearning for a deeper connection with home, Davido reflectingly asks ‘Are we African Yet?’, are we willing to claim our heritage and our culture. The A.W.A.Y Festival is an opportunity that urges the African diaspora and non-Africans around the world to find and celebrate each other roots and experience African culture like never before.

Afrobeats music is currently one of the fastest growing music genre, gaining global recognition and some of Africa’s finest artists will grace the stage alongside some of the hottest stars stateside, with headline performances by DAVIDO, KIZZ DANIEL, PHEELZ, LOJAY, VICTONY, OXLADE, BNXN, FOCALISTIC, AND MORE.

*Tickets for the first ever A.W.A.Y Festival will go on sale beginning Friday, September 23, 2022 at Ticketmaster.com*

“Growing up, we were often made to feel unworthy as Africans, so many of us didn’t want to claim where we were from and in some cases denied our heritage. That’s not the case anymore, we are proud Africans, and we want to invite people to enjoy our culture – our music, food and art. That’s what The A.W.A.Y Festival is all about.” said, A.W.A.Y Festival Founder, Davido.

ARE WE AFRICAN YET?’s mission is to unite communities, promote collaboration and celebrate the diversity and magic of African music and culture. It is an opportunity to build coalition between Africa and the world. Through the power of music, A.W.A.Y seeks to celebrate our shared parallels in culture, dance, clothing and provide an opportunity to empower everyone to build pride and claim their heritage proudly.
