Afrobeats festival, Afro Nation Ghana has announced the addition of US rapper Meek Mill to its bill slated for December 29-30, 2022, at Marine Drive, Black Star Square.
Meek Mill is the first American artist to join the bill at the festival and the show marks his first major appearance in Africa, following years of talk about visiting Ghana.
Bringing a slew of some of hip hop’s biggest smash hits with him, he’s often seen teaming up with the biggest names in the game like Drake, Snoop Dogg, Jay Z, Post Malone and previous partner Nicki Minaj, and is no stranger to Afrobeats either.
The Grammy Award-nominated rapper from Philadelphia collaborated with fellow Afro Nation Ghana 2022 headliner Davido on the single ‘Fans Mi’ in 2015.
Meek Mill is joined on the line-up by Nigerian Afrobeats singer Asake.
Asake is expected to bring his vibrant and hotly-tipped brand of “Street-Pop” to the centre of Accra, with global favourites like ‘Bandana’ set to steal the show. Featuring heavily in both the recently launched Billboard US Afrobeats Chart and the Official UK Afrobeats Chart right now, Asake is firmly on the rise.
Alongside Meek Mill and Asake, an impressive array of today’s hottest names have already been revealed for the festival’s big return.
Ghana’s own Stonebwoy is joined by Nigerian party king Davido, the legendary duo P-Square, plus Rema, Dadju, CKay, Adekunle Gold, Black Sherif, coming together with Ghana brightest new stars Kuami Eugene, KiDi, Gyakie and Camidoh.
On top of this, Afro Nation Ghana hosts all the leading Amapiano artists Major League DJz, Uncle Waffles, Kamo Mphela as well as DJ Maphorisa and Kabza De Small’s collaborative project Scorpion Kings.
