Sierra Leone’s hip hop sensation Benjamin George popularly known as Drizilik has been contracted to perform at the 1st AfriCaribbean Festival
The festival which is set to hold between December 28th 2022 and 2nd January 2023 is a promotional partnership with the Miami carnival, a non-profit organization named Miami- Broward.
The Miami Carnival is seemingly dedicated to bring a safe family festival in South Florida and outlying areas to foster community pride, civic involvement and providing critical opportunities to the Caribbean people in South Florida with an aim of sharing the Caribbean culture.
It was established also to promote cultural exchange and building an economic cooperation in the multi-ethnic and multi-cultural environment of South Florida.
With such a history, the AfriCaribbean festival is designed to take such cultural values to Africa with a first stop in Freetown, Sierra Leone.
This will be an ultimate festival event showcasing Sierra Leonean music (Gumbe), African Music (Afro-beat) and Caribbean music (Soca Calypso) within a six days long festival of arts, and a lot of entertainment bounties lined up for your December festivities.
It is indeed a bold step in the creative industry as it is believed to bring together Africans, Caribbean, African Americans, Afro Latinos and Afro-Asians through Music, arts, culture and ancestry.
AfriCaribbean Festival is expected to be a platform to celebrate, showcase heritage, promote local and international talents through such an experience that will culminate in the presentation and unveiling of a set of commemorative artworks from the district of Maryland and Virginia arts community to the residents of the city of Freetown bringing together the African and Carribbean Culture in one unique location in Freetown, Sierra Leone.
Visitors are expected from around the world to participate in the six days long festival.
Drizilik and Dalas Bantan from Sierra Leone are amongst the list of international artists to perform during the festival to be held on 28th of December 2022 to the 2nd of January 2023.
Sierra Leoneans should expect a unique and culturally diverse experience that has never happened in any other African country.
