Celebration of Africa and Beyond at Afrochella 2021

  • Post category:Blog

There’s no denying that Afrochella 2021 was perhaps the best yet since the event launched in 2017. El Wak Stadium was filled with festival goers dressed in all things Africa to celebrate the culture and vibrancy of people of African descent. People travelled from around the world to attend the event which featured activations throughout the event grounds that highlighted the culture of Africa and the global black diaspora.

This year the festival featured a partnership with YouTube, Twitter and Instagram. The festival grounds featured interactive areas where festival-goers, often called ‘Afrochellans’, could take pictures and create videos to share their experiences for YouTube and Twitter. One of the most popular installations was one that featured the distinct culture of people in Northern Ghana.
