When speaking of an African invasion, a music invasion is the last thing I think of but the invasion in nonetheless welcome if it involves shaking a leg or two, to the sounds of some of Africa's most recognised artists. Africa Unplugged will kick off in London at the O2 Academy Brixton on Sunday 14th September and end at The Ritz Manchester on Sunday 21st September2014. Hosed by DJ Abass, the night will headline Africa's most buzzing artists of 2014 - MTV and BET award winners, Tiwa Savage, Davido and Diamond Platnumz, and will include UK's own CEO Dancers (Britain's Got Talent) and dance groups AFRIKA, D3 and PROJECT G as well as music exclusively from Capital Extra's DJ Abrantee.
This year's event main objective is to promote ONE AFRICA: UNITED. Driven by the missing Chibok schoolgirls in Nigeria, this year’s awareness campaign focuses on Africa's struggle against child trafficking and child abuse.
Fans will have the unique opportunity to experience the buzz of African music,comedy and dance through striking visuals, and incredible diverse performances for a worthy cause.
