The TINA( This is New Africa) festival has been scheduled to take place on the 4th of Jan,2019 at the Round Pavilion, Trade Fair, Accra, Ghana.
The festival will be a day party populated with a market fair and other activities, and then an evening concert with performances from the likes of Fuse ODG, Sarkodie, Stefflon Don, Joey B, Lethal Bizzle, and many others.
The aim of the annual TINA Festival is to become the home of the Afrobeats sound and also the place where people go to experience the genuine lifestyle that comes with the Afrobeats wave.
“Afrobeat”, over the years has become a new African sound and has captured the attention of the world. The sound has gained millions of followers from every corner of the globe.
African music is fast becoming a force to be reckoned with in the global music scene.
CREATION OF TINA FESTIVAL
Global Afrobeats superstar Fuse ODG helped to create the TINA Festival. As one of the leading pioneers of the sound, he has been using his music and influence to promote Ghana and Africa in a way that has never been done before.
He is famous not only for his music and helping the rise of Afrobeats world-wide but also for his tireless commitment to re-educate how Africa is perceived in the world.
Fuse ’s efforts to spread this message has allowed him to connect with a variety of artists worldwide which has led to him earning the first Grammy Award to be received by a Ghanaian. He has invited global superstars such as Ed Sheeran to stay with him in Accra and gain an experience of Ghana aimed at changing global perceptions. It is in that same vision that has led to the creation of the TINA Festival.
In reuniting the Global African Diaspora, the Tina Festival will be part of a wider series of events over three days held at Ghana’s most iconic venue.
TINA FESTIVAL ITINERARY
2nd January 2019 – National Builders Day
In 2007, This Is New Africa (TINA) and Wood World Mission Charity started a school in Akosombo with just a handful of students. What began as an Orphanage is now a thriving school with over 200 students being supported by the organization. National Builders day is to encourage the diaspora community to give back to society. There will be a call for Volunteers to come and help the school. Volunteers will be at Akosombo School to paint the school and interact with the pupils and also inspire them. An exciting boat ride and tour of the beautiful Akosombo landscape fused with a party on the bus and lots of networking will be part of the day for all.
