ADDITIONAL NOTES:
LINE UP

London has seen the rise and growth in Afrobeats concerts in recent
years but never to the capacity of One African Music Fest. Set to make
history as the biggest Afrobeats festival to be held in Europe, the
London edition of One Africa Music Fest will bring together
Africa's most dominant stars such as Davido, Tekno, P-Square and
Tiwa Savage, among others - hosted by popular singer, director and
actor Banky W.
DAVIDO


Undoubtedly one of the biggest Afrobeats artists to come out of
Nigeria, singer Davido accredits much of his success to the support he
has received in London calling it his “second home”. From
'Dami Duro' and 'Aye', to 'Skelewu' and
'Gobe', his list of anthems speak for his thriving global
career. Davido is currently signed to Sony and has previously toured
the UK as well as selling out concerts all around the world.
P. SQUARE


Sensational R&B duo, Peter and Paul Okoye have been championing
African music across the globe for many years. Renowned for their
energetic stage performances, breathtaking choreography and simply
good music, London awaits the timeless hits from the twin brothers who
have worked with the likes of Akon, T.I and Rick Ross.
TEKNO


Tekno, popularly referred to as 'The Golden Boy of African
Music', became a fan favourite following the release of his first
single 'Holiday' featuring Davido back in 2013. He later went
on to release hit singles ‘Dance’, ‘Duro’, ‘Wash’ as well
as ‘Pana’ which dominated the airwaves internationally last year,
propelling his career to new heights. Tekno signed to Sony earlier
this year.


Tiwa Savage
Newly signed to Jay Z’s Roc Nation label, 'Africa’s
Beyonce' returns to the One Africa Music Fest stage. Not a
stranger to her doting UK fan base, this will be a long-awaited return
to London. The singer rose to stardom following her X Factor UK stint
which saw her make it to the Judges Houses back in 2006.
Cassper Nyovest


Ranked number one on MTV Base’s Hottest Emcees list 2016 (South
Africa), rapper Cassper Nyovest will be performing in the UK for the
first time on the One Africa Music Fest stage. Having won numerous
awards and sold out concerts in S.A, a freestyle on Tim Westwood Crib
sessions in 2015 introduced him to a wider UK audience.
