The Africa Unplugged festival is more than just an event for entertainment, but an event that aims to raise awareness of the struggles within African nations facing challenges such as Poverty, Malaria, War, Genocide, HIV/Aids,the lack of access to clean water and many more struggles that the continent has suffered from.
“We want to educate, motivate and inspire all by shedding light on the plight of Mother Africa, and the issues she faces (Genocide, Poverty, Corruption, War, HIV, Water shortage and Malaria). We will also celebrate the spirit of Africa through music, comedy and dance.” – Atoba (CEO)
From this event, the Africa Unplugged team are hoping that their vision for Africa is achieved. The organizers saw everyday challenges that Africa bears and were inspired to organize an event that will help the continent, therefore, a substantial portion of proceeds from the concert will go to support and address these challenges Africa faces.
As these dedicated individuals have come together to create an event that we all will not forget , come support and help Africa rise, together we can make a change for Africa and make history.
