This is New Africa Festival and Conference

Fuse ODG leads the charge to celebrate Afrobeats with New Africa Festival and Conference

With Afrobeats quickly taking a spot on the global music stage, conversations and methods to push ot must be had. Afrobeats musician, Fuse ODG is taking the reins in early 2019 with the This is New Africa (T.I.N.A.) Music Festival and Conference.

TINA Festival is a collaboration with the Ghana Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture to promote Afrobeats music and culture, the African continent and Ghana as a catalyst for tourism and investment. The festival will feature  thought leaders such as H.E. Nana Akufo-AddoPresident of the Republic of Ghana,  Political Activist,  Samia Nkrumah, BBC Broadcaster,  Reggie Yates, Actress/Producer, Ama K Abebrese, Media Personality and Entrepreneur, Bola Ray, and musicians Sarkodie,  SteffLondonJoey B, andLethal Bizzle.
Created under the auspices of the Ministry of Tourism, arts and Culture, The TINA Festival  is the first event scheduled for the Year of Return, a year-long calendar of activities inviting the global African family to a birth-right journey home to Ghana.
The festival will be heralded by various conferences, collaborative works and climaxed with a music concert featuring Stefflon Don, Lethal Bizzle, Joey B, and other musicians.
“I am excited to launch the TINA Festival because it will be the place where people come to experience genuine Afrobeats culture and lifestyle that comes with the music as well as serve as a platform for them to come back home, experience the rich Ghanaian culture and share their own stories. We envision TINA Festival becoming the global home for the African sound of Afrobeats like the Glastonbury Festival is the home to Rock music,” shares Fuse ODG, an Afrobeats pioneer and Grammy Award winner who has been committed to using his music and influence to re-educate how Africa is perceived in the world.
