Afro Nation festivals made their global debut in 2022 with a series of successful events in Portugal, Ghana, and Puerto Rico. Over 40,000 concertgoers attended the Portugal festival in July, which featured headliners Wizkid, Burna Boy, and Megan Thee Stallion. (The festival’s presence in the same spot from June 28 to 30 in 2023 has already been confirmed; the lineup has not yet been revealed.) They made a stop in Ghana for the festival’s first event there since 2019 — the year the festival was founded — to round up the year.
