The first ever edition of the Afropolitan Vibes music festival held on Friday, December 16, 2016 and Saturday, December 17, 2016 at Freedom Park, Lagos Island.
The festival showcased two sessions per day; the Urban unplugged and evening sessions in which an impressive number of musicians with their variety of genres graced the stage to deliver amazing live performances.
In addition to live performances and interview sessions hosted by the founder of the Afropolitan Vibes movement, Ade Bantu, the Urban unplugged sessions saw live artistic representations of each of the performing acts with an artist present sketching the artistes whilst they performed.
The night sessions on the other hand was an entirely different vibe. Guests came prepared to enjoy every bit of what the Bantu team had up their sleeves. The excitement was infectious as guests jumped onto the stage to dance, many reliving sounds from their formative years with legendary music acts.
Veterans musicians that performed include Shina Ayinde Bakare and Kollington Ayinla while other acts are Fuji star; Saheed Osupa, General Pype, Terry Apala, BOJ, alternative music stars like Ayo Awosika, Mary Akpa among others.
The maiden edition of the Afropolitan Vibes music festival was an absolute success so much that guests including renowned movie producer, Kunle Afolayan declared that they couldn't wait for the next edition!
