This year’s Wireless festival is shaping up to be an event not to be missed, especially if you’re a fan of Afrobeats. The biggest export of the genre Fuse ODG has been confirmed as one of the acts lined up to perform at this year’s event.
The British Ghanaian singer who hit the limelight with his catchy tune, ‘Azonto’, has gone on to enjoy tremendous success with three top 10 hits to his name including ‘Dangerous Love’ Ft. Sean Paul which he released in 2014.
His new album T.I.N.A which means ‘This Is New Africa’, is currently enjoying great airplay around the UK. The album is based on the message that the ‘new Africa’ is a land of hope and opportunity, rather than fostering the stereotypical image of the continent usually promoted by western media.
Other acts scheduled to perform include George The Poet, Labrinth, Little Simz, Wretch 32 , Jessie J and Stormzy.
From across the pond, heavyweights including Nicki Minaj, Drake and Gorgon City will also be flying in to perform at Finsbury Park on the 3rd, 4th and 5th of July.
