The third annual Afro-Caribbean Music Festival has announced a spectacular music lineup, including ground-breaking Jamaican musician KOFFEE, Nigerian Afropop sensation TEKNO, Cuba’s Jacob Forever, and Haitian hitmaker J. PERRY.
The Afro-Carib festival, hosted by the city of Lauderdale, Florida, will honor the mingling of people and traditions that developed as a result of a common heritage in Africa. The result of such strong ties is a population whose music, culture, and food are all the better for it.
The festival will come on at the Miramar Regional Park Amphitheater in Miramar, Florida on February 25 for the third annual Afro-Carib Festival (ACF). Reggae, Afrobeats, Afropop, reggaeton, and salsa, among other musical styles from the Caribbean and African diaspora, will be performed live for the audience.
Grammy Award winner Mikayla Victoria Simpson, better known as Koffee, whose message of love and unity has captured people across the world, will be the main act at the next music and culture event. When she won the Grammy for Best Reggae Album at age 18 for her song ‘Toast’, she made history as the youngest and first female reggae performer to win the award.
Nigerian musician and songwriter Tekno will also be performing on the Afro-Caribbean stage. The Nigerian singer-songwriter-producer who calls himself ‘The king of Afropop’ has been making waves on the internet and radio since his 2016 international hit ‘Pana’ was released.
Grammy-nominee Cuban musician Jacob Forever, will also be performing at the event. His music spans bachata, urban, and reggaeton, and he is recognized for fusing rap and reggaeton styles.
Fans haven’t been able to get Haitian singer J Perry’s catchy song Dekole (ole-ole-o) out of their heads since it came out in Haiti in 2011. Its remix was used to promote the 2014 World Cup.
