This week Afro Nation, which is the world's biggest afrobeats festival, announced the 2023 dates for its flagship Portugal edition. The festival will be returning to Praia Da Rocha beach in the Algarve between June 28 to 30 in 2023.

This announcement was made alongside the release of the ;Afro Nation 2022 Official Aftermovie’, which premiered on YouTube earlier in the week.

The clip takes us back to the performances from festival headliners Burna Boy, Wizkid, Davido, Chris Brown and Megan Thee Stallion in July.

The festival also saw performances from legends P-Square and Beenie Man alongside newer acts like CKay, Popcaan, Shenseea, Omah Lay, Rema and Dadju.

The new and popular Piano People stage also hosted a huge amapiano lin- up that included DJ Maphorisa, Musa Keys, Uncle Waffles, Young Stunna and Focalistic in front of 35 000 screaming fans.
