African music has evolved in the last 5 years seeing it come to the forefront of popular culture and thus attaining world recognition- evidence of this is MTV Europe Awards, BET Awards and the MOBOs having a Best African Act category and very recently Choice FM; the UK’s Number 1 urban radio station launching the first ever music slots dedicated to African music tagged Afrobeats with DJ Abrantee, a move which made Choice FM a trending topic on Twitter for the first time in the history of the station since the advent of social media.

The Evolution of Afrobeats has gained steady grounds over the years and recent times ‘Fela The Musical’ came to London’s National Theatre and played to sold out audiences. There has also been a cross over from Caribbean audiences who have come to appreciate and enjoy African culture. This has been evident in the increase of Caribbean audiences watching Nollywood films and listening to the sounds from Africa.

African Pride and African Heritage are openly celebrated in the UK. Young people now openly identify with their cultural heritage- a fete which 10 years ago encountered stigmatism. Gone are the days when young people felt ashamed to be African for fear of exclusion- we are now in a time where young people are proud to be African and are thus expressing their pride in their music.

To further affirm, the celebration and acceptance of Afrobeats into the fabric of mainstream society, Choice FM in Association with Cokobar.com, Phoenix Media, Smade & HITV presents Africa’s biggest Music and Comedy showcase to date in the UK; the Afrobeats Festival featuring some of Africa’s biggest and best artist and comics.

A fusion of Music and comedy, the show will be hosted by Choice’s DJ Abrantee and also feature the best of UK and African comedians Basket Mouth and Elenu.

Africa’s biggest Pop Stars PSquare bring their sound to the UK. With sold out stadium and arena concerts under their belts and a feature on CNN; UK Afrobeats audiences should expect an incredible show from the world famous Twins. Speaking on the upcoming show, Peter, one half of PSquare states “We are really looking forward to our UK performance with full band and making sure our UK fans have a night to remember. This will be a celebration of African music and how far it has come”.

In his first UK concert, WizKid who definitely has the Justin Bibber factor with over 46,000 twitter followers and breaking sales record in his first week of his new ‘Superstar’ album selling in excess of 50,000 copies in its first week alone. The Afrobeats ‘Artist of summer 2011’ is set to blow the audience away with his dancehall infused hit ‘Tease me’ and club staple ‘Don’t Dull’ from his new album ‘Superstar’.

Joining the line up is the charismatic Ice Prince performing his crowd pleaser ‘Oleku’ and new single ‘Superstar’. Ice Prince brings Hip Hop to a whole new level to form what can be term Afro Hip Hop- a fusion of tradition Hip Hop beats and rap with a melodic blend of African dialect. A recent guest on the UK’s Tim Westwood on his BBC radio show, Ice price is set to light up the stage at the Afrobeats Festival.

Speaking at the on the Afrobeats Festival Mobo Award winner and one of the pioneers of the Afrobeats genre DJ Abrantee says “The Afrobeats Festival is one that has come at the right time when the world is now paying attention to African entertainment and with the show’s line up, a lot of people will be shocked at what Africa has to offer. To all our listeners of the Afro Beats show every Saturday on Choice Fm the stage is set for a truly memorable night”.

The Afrobeats Festival 2011 will also feature Basket Mouth who is co hosting the show and dishing out some rib cracking jokes on the back of his sold out Lord Of the Ribs Show at the Indigo 02 audiences should expect a good day at the office from our very own “ Chris Rock”.

We hope to take African entertainment to new heights and eventually have own version of Glastonbury , why not”
