Afro Nation Portugal is a festival of Afrobeats, hip-hop, R&B, dancehall, amapiano, Afrohouse and more held each summer on the beautiful Praia da Rocha beach, just south of Portimão.
After having to postpone two consecutive editions ostensibly due to covid19 pandemic, Afro Nation is raring to go again as it returns to the sunny shores of Portugal for another weekend in the company of some of the world’s biggest artistes.
The 2019 edition of the event in Portugal featured several Nigerian music stars with majority of attendees flying in from England.
However, the debut edition of it in Ghana in December of the same year was not as grand as planned.
It’s not sure yet if the expected Nigerian debut of the festival will happen this December.
