President of DMW, Davido, is set to be the main headliner for London’s Music Carnival dubbed ‘Yam Carnival’ this August at Clapham Common, London.
The show will also feature his co-Nigerian artistes like Patoranking, Yemi Alade, Rema, Femi Kuti, and others. Ghana’s King Promise will also perform at the event alongside Koffee from Jamaica and several American artistes like Ari Lennox, Khelani, and more. London’s own NSG and Darkoo will also perform at the event.
YAM Carnival is a brand new Afrobeat music festival set to make its debut show this summer (August). It is organized by the same people who created AfroNation, one of the most recognized Afrobeat Festivals in the world.
AfroNation became the most expensive, yet the most attended Afrobeat festival in 2019 after it started trending on Twitter heavily. In 2020, organizers refused to refund money to those who had purchased the event’s tickets ahead of time while the event got canceled due to the global pandemic. This created a huge problem on social media.
