Afrochella is in its third year, and I still can’t believe that I am yet to attend it. But as an observer, I can say that I am proud of how the festival has evolved to become a iconic display for Ghanaian and African culture at large for the whole world to see!

This year I had representation at the festival and our video of the biggest pot of jollof rice, which was cooked at the festival grounds (El Was Stadium), has gone viral all over the world, even catching the eyes of Guinness Book of Records.

This year the festival saw performances by leading African acts such as Sarkodie, Samini, Tiwa Savage, and Wande Coal. There was also a appearance by Kranium.

Other vital performances and showcases from across Africa and the African diaspora included Distruction Boyz (South Africa), Mercedes Benson (UK), Neya Music (Tanzania), Amarachi Nwosu (Nigeria) and more.
