Curating urban afro-centric cultural experiences is a job best done by Afrovibes Africa. Through their expressions as Abula Festival, Indie Night Lagos, Sing Along Concert and Afrovibes Live, they transform the hypothetical intersection between food and music culture into reality. And again, they are back with an Afrovibes Live in Lagos, to be headlined by Johnny Drille.
For years, Afrovibes Live has been that concert series that leaves the whole city reminiscing its intimacy right after it. The idea of the series is to create an experience of remarkable live music for its attendees, who would also be a one-of-a-kind audience to thoughtful, uber talented artistes/performers. This time around, set to hold on May 28, 2023, it will be Johnny Drille delivering chills to the audience through his lucid vocals and music delivery.
This edition is themed “Based on Believe”, referencing Johnny’s latest hit record that features popular veteran label executive, producer and songwriter – Don Jazzy. Johnny Drille is an afro-fusion artiste who imbibes prominent country, folk and R&B influences in his music. He is most known for his vocal dexterity and innate ability to steal the hearts of the ladies simply by his existing. And this same energy is promised at his Afrovibes Live headline.
While speaking about the entire reason for the event, with this edition set to happen at Terra Kulture by 7pm on the earlier mentioned date, Bisilola Bakare – founder of the Afrovibes Africa experiences – said:
“Afrovibes Africa started to create platforms meeting a need. A need to give fast-rising alternative and live music artists a platform to express themselves. Today, it is doing that and even more by creating fun live music and art expressions on the Mainland; one of its kind at the time.”
“Afrovibes Africa was created to give fast-rising artists a platform to express themselves…”
Even as she speaks, Bisilola’s passion for art is evident in the firmness with which all her words are formed. The cognoscenti has worked in the music and creative industries for decades since she was a teenager and with Afrovibes Live, the aim is to “promote live music through music concerts that are sure-fire avenues for family bonding and friends’ night out, cutting across generations.”
