Why Is The AFRICAN Music Fest Holding In Dubai, Newyork and London? by Nobody: 4:31pm On Nov 14, 2019
This is an opportunity for Africa to showcase its culture and tourism, it being rotated around African countries yearly would be a show worth looking upto in coming years.

at the same time build that connection between Africans, aswell as show the world Africa is not all that the International media may portray it to be.

This is an opportunity to showcase Africa, build employment, build commerce, encourage African travels, build tourism etc... but Africans would always be Africans.

Why name the show African music Festival and not hold it in an African country.

If you dont promote your own, how do you even think the world would regard your own.

My 2 cents..

I think the aim of the organizers is to export and promote African music to the world.

Lol.
Because they know most of these white people don't have time to start flying to Nigeria for shows.

So we will rather boost their revenue by going there to perform.

Africans should use the same media that was against us instead of touring from one country to another. Whoever organized this should have thought of it instead of just the monetary value

It is because Africans don't believe in themselves as no structures and reputations to bring the world to their door steps.

The constant shouting of 'Africa' 'One Africa' has very little meaning to me. It's largely meaningless, quite embarrassing, cringeworthy and borderline irritating.

Building friendships, peace and extending a hand of partnership across nations and continents is worthy. But we must build our individual nations. I honestly don't feel any more connected to someone in Ghana, Mali or Sudan that I feel for Inuits in the far corners of icy Canada. My goodwill extends to all good people of the world.

Shouting one Africa all over the place means what exactly. Even within Nigeria, we barely tolerate one another. I notice it's musicians mostly shouting and screaming this one africa stuff.

Now they are holding a so-called one Africa event in every continent, but the so-called Africa. Just makes the black man look a fool.

Africa who do us this abeg.

American Musicians, Hollywood, Bollywood, are appreciated all over the world not because they wasted their time flying all over the world.

What are they trying to prove. Anyway black man with inferiority complex Sha. We always believe we have leave the shore of Africa to promote Africa.

Can we be more cultural than the a Chinese and Indians.

The organiser is just a businessman cashing in big time from this so call show.

1. You can't afford to host it
2. Need to export the music to a wider audience
3. Logistics
