AFRONATION: SMADE Reveals The Secret Behind Choosing Ghana For The Maiden Edition.
GREATER ACCRA, GHANA - Nigerian entrepreneur, Co-Founder Of AfroNation Festival and prolific events promoter who is bringing the African Diaspora together through Music and entertainment, SMADE, christened Adesegun Adeosun Jr., has highlighted and accentuated the protocol factors his team considered before designating Ghana to host the maiden African edition of the Afronation concert.
This year, Smade and his partner, Obi Asika, founder of Echo Location Talent, a leading talent management agency who covers many of the most well-know urban acts globally are hosting the first installment of their already sold-out festival, Afro Nation. The festival took place on the beautiful beaches of Algarve, Portugal August 1-4. They will host a second edition of the fest on Laboma Beach in Accra, Ghana December 27-30.
The festival will have performances from some of the biggest names out of Africa right now like, Stonebwoy, Davido, Shatta Wale, R2Bees, Olamide, D'Banj Wizkid, Alkaline and Burna Boy. There are going to be beach parties & boat parties; and expect delicious African food and amazing African fashion. It’s going to be good vibes all around
According to SMADE, the first African destination of the biggest urban music beach festival had to have a beautiful weather and be accessible to the people spread all over, Africa and Europe. He added that, they chose Ghana because it is affordable for the festival goers and has good vibes, and also has a strong link to African history.
He also revealed that, the freedom from disturbance; tranquillity or peace, uninterrupted flow of electrical power and the friendly and generous reception and entertainment of guests, visitors, or strangers; hospitality nature of Ghanaians has made the country the preferred location on the African continent and in the West African region, respectively, to host Africa's edition of the festival.
Ghana’s stunning coastline runs 560 kilometres from Aflao in the Volta Region to Cape Three Points in the Western Region. With an average temperature of 30 degrees in December, it’s no surprise that we’ve chosen this incredible location as our next festival destination. Amazing beaches can be found in abundance along the Ghana coastline, the ever-popular Laboma Beach being one of them. Just five miles south of Accra’s Kotoka International Airport, Laboma will turn into a festival paradise.
Meanwhile, speaking in an interview with www.georgebritton.com's budding Journalist; Gerrard-Israel, Mr. Adesegun Adeosun Jr. revealed that, a cross section of Nigerian entertainment couriers (gatekeepers) and the creative arts & culture practitioners are having some detasteful feeling towards him for not hosting the festival in Nigeria. According to him, the gatekeepers stated that, hosting the project in Nigeria would have increased the per capital income of the country, and also boost tourism.
