The colourful fourth edition of the African Drum Festival in Abeokuta, Ogun State, was once again an epicenter for Africa’s cultural wealth and glamour, Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, was a beehive of events as it played host to troupes from within and outside the country. The fourth edition of African Drum Festival, a brainchild of the Ogun State Government, attracted contingents from Europe, about 27 African countries as well as troupes from 26 States of the country and 71 independent performers.

The venue this time was the 10,000-capacity amphitheater at Oke-Ilewo, in the heart of Abeokuta. Filled to its capacity, troupes armed with myriads of drums and artistic costumes, which depicted their ethnicity diversities, took turns displaying superlative cultural performances. The Festival, themed, ‘Drumming The Future,’ also featured the launch of the Ogun Adire logo, with its trade mark, the unveiling of the Kuti’s heritage house and a round table workshop at Olumo Rock. There was also a Train ride, tagged, ‘Rail, Reading and Ride,’ from Iju-Ishaga in Lagos to Lafenwa in Abeokuta and a performance by Seun Kuti, in honour of his father, the late Fela Anikulapo Kuti.
