Spotify brought together celebrities, podcasters, influencers, music executives, media personalities, and music fans on Thursday, October 12 and Friday, October 13 for two interactive events named #SpotifyPodcastsLagos and #SpotifyAfrobeats. The events, hosted at La Madison Place in Lekki, Lagos, featured and celebrated the rich culture of Afrobeats as well as the genre’s outstanding achievements throughout the years.

The two-day celebrations kicked off with a masterclass led by Ncebakazi Manzi, Spotify’s Podcast Manager for Sub-Saharan Africa. The workshop presented an engaging platform for podcast aficionados, delving deep into the craft of storytelling, exploring creative techniques and ideas, and demonstrating Spotify’s commitment to podcast creator empowerment.
