“Growing up, we were often made to feel unworthy as Africans, so many of us didn’t want to claim where we were from and in some cases denied our heritage. That’s not the case anymore, we are proud Africans, and we want to invite people to enjoy our culture—our music, food and art. That’s what The AWAY Festival is all about,” said, AWAY Festival Founder, Davido.
Many collaboration with US based artists over the years has positioned him as one of the bridges to connect Africa to the rest of the world.
