Afrochella 2021: The “Made In Africa” Experience 

The King Stool

Afrochella is an annual Festival that presents a colourful celebration of Africa’s diverse culture and the vibrant work of African creatives and entrepreneurs.

Held in Ghana each year, the festival is designed to elevate and highlight thriving millennial talents through interactive activities that teaches, explains and explores various cultures through a pioneering approach.
It is a festive celebration of our culture in the form of Art & Fashion Installations, Live Painting, Best of African Cuisine and Live Performances.
The 4th edition of the festival took place at El Wak Stadium in a stylish setting amidst remarkable performances.
Kente fashion
The theme for this year’s festival is “Made in Africa,” to encourage the further advancement and awareness of Africa’s homegrown talent in music, art, fashion, and food. It is also to encourage the Africans and Diasporans to appreciate, love and patronize made in Africa goods.
The event started at 2pm with  art installations, street fashion and a slew of DJs with hot picks of African music.
The Queen Seat
Some major highlights included King and Queen Seat installations, an artistic car model made from plywood, independence arch installations and YouTube shots ground among others.
Live performances started at 7pm with headlining artistes such as Stonebwoy, Wizkid, King Promise, Black Sherif, Gyakie, Joel-B, Kojo Antwi, Amaarae, Ari Lennox and a host of others.
The 2019 Afrochella was a celebration with Ghana’s Year of Return. However, this year’s event is a celebration of Beyond The Return for people in the diaspora.
The event attracted thousands of patrons beyond Ghana and has over the last few years grown to become a major highlight of Christmas in the country and in the international community.
