Speaking on the upcoming event, Project Lead and Head of Media, AFRIMA, Sola Dada said: “It is no doubt this year’s AFRIMA Music Village attendees will leave with utmost fulfilment. The decision by the International Committee of AFRIMA to change venue and take the concert closer to the grassroots in Agege Stadium, Agege Lagos where die-hard and loyal music lovers are, is to avail them the opportunity to experience their favourite African stars perform live on stage. From its inception, the concert has catered to its audience creating an experience that stays with them for a long time. “The previous edition in Ghana at the 100,000-capacity Independence Square in Accra left the crowd yearning for more, and the 6th edition will surely surpass previous ones.” The 6th AFRIMA Music Village stage will be lit up with musical performances broadcast live on different television channels across the world.
