After captivating Ghanaians with a memorable experience in 2022, Global Citizen is set to return in 2024 with a new initiative called “Move Afrika: A Global Citizen Experience Tour.”
The international advocacy organization announced that the event will be hosted in Accra, Ghana, and Kigali, Rwanda.
President Nana Akufo-Addo and PGLang, an American creative imprint, are collaborators of Move Afrika 2024.
The initiative aims to drive economic investment in the Ghanaian entertainment industry, support Ghanaian-owned businesses, and empower young entrepreneurs.
The inaugural Move Afrika event took place in Kigali, Rwanda, in December 2023, marking the launch of an annual, multi-country tour.
This tour seeks to change the landscape of live entertainment in Africa while making investments in local economies, skill training, and youth entrepreneurship.
Global Citizen plans to expand the Move Afrika tour to three countries in 2024 and reach five countries by 2025.
Ghana’s first Global Citizen festival was held at the Black Star Square in Accra on September 24, 2022.
The event featured performances from Ghanaian artists such as Sarkodie, Stonebwoy, Yaw Tog, Kwesi Arthur, and Gyakie, as well as international artists like Usher, SZA, Stormzy, and Tems.
The upcoming Move Afrika tour is expected to continue the tradition of bringing impactful live music events to engage youth and create social and economic impact in the host countries. Further details, including event dates and lineups, will be announced in the coming months.
