By Benjamin Njoku

Memories of afrobeat king,Fela Anikunlapo-Kuti will reverbrate  in the United States this November as the maiden edition of  the annual Afrobeat summit holds from Friday, November 2, 2018 till Sunday, November 4.

Unlike other high profile events of this nature centered around music of African origin and hosted  across the continent from Lagos, Nigeria to Cape Town, South Africa, and Rabat, Morocco to Timbuktu on the fringes of the Sahara Desert in Mali, the Afrobeat Conference 2018 promises to raise the bar a notch higher and will hold at the prestigious   Fillmore Miami Beach in the United States.

According to Afrobeats International LLC, organizers of the summit, the essence of the event is to “ provide a platform introducing Afrobeats to the world.” The decision to hold the confab in the United States is borne out of the need for Afrobeats to be recognized by all as a mainstream genre  providing an opportunity for stakeholders in the African music scene to reach out to the rest of the world.  The summit will provide a networking platform for entrepreneurs and business owners featuring  leading figures in the African entertainment industry.

The summit which will  feature  workshops, breakout sessions, strategic one-on-one meetings with industry experts, networking and collaboration introductions, extensive insider knowledge among other things will have in attendance music producers, musicians, enthusiasts and other stakeholders.
