Top Nigerian singers, Ayodeji Balogun aka Wizkid and Damini ”Burna Boy” Ogulu, have been tapped to headline a new Afrobeats festival tagged; ‘Lost in Riddim’.
The festival is slated to take place in Sacramento, California, USA, and it has a star-studded lineup, some of which include, Rotimi, Tiwa Savage, Fireboy DML, Rema, Tems and Mr. Eazi. Jamaican stars, Koffee and Shenseea are also in the lineup.
The event will hold on October 2nd and 3rd 2021 at Cesar Chavez Plaza in downtown Sacramento. Wiz will perform on the first day while Burna will make his headline appearance on the second day.
The festival which was created to celebrate Afrobeats, Dancehall and Reggae music – African-rooted genres that are conquering the world, is organised by the producers of Sol Blume Music festival, Fornati Kumeh and Jehu “Manny” Hunter.
The organisers stated the essence of the festival in a press release.
”We created this event to not only showcase some of the most popular international music artists in the entire world, many of whom continued to be overlooked by major US music festivals, but also create a unique celebration about the beauty of African culture.
The team can’t wait to soon debut a completely unique festival-going experience in Sacramento this Fall. Throwing Lost in Riddim in Sacramento was also a no-brainer because not only is this our hometown, but our other festival Sol Blume has ultimately helped to lay the groundwork for us to expand locally and launch a second concept this fall”, the statement read.
