Kwesta, Burna Boy and Jidenna are set to headline the Africans Unite concert. Minnie Dlamini will host the concert aims to unite the continent against xenophobia and gender-based violence and rebuild trust and respect amongst African nations. This comes a few months after the recent xenophobic attacks and increasing reports of gender-based violence in South Africa. The concert is a collaborative project between the Department of Sports, Arts and Culture, Channel O and Play Network Africa.
Speaking on the concert, Burna shared the importance of the concert. He said in part: “As we have our leaders working towards uniting Africa, it is important that we see each other as brothers of the same soil and come together and unite Africa. We must recognise and accept our differences as a continent and people of diverse cultures and love one another regardless. Both indigenous and non-indigenous businesses should be able to thrive in every country on the African continent – that way we will become the most formidable continent on the planet.”
Kwesta agreed sharing: “There is no way that we are going to have peace as a nation or continent if we don’t unite as Africans. Things are as they are right now because we are fighting against each other. We need to stand together, support one another and protect each other, especially our women.”
The Africans Unite concert takes place on 23 November in Cape Town and 24 November in Johannesburg.
