According to Big Twins who are the organizers of the festival, through their international performances and tours, they realized that there is a need to create the West African Music Festival because West Africa has rich culture and music.
“Festivals bring people together, and also gives an opportunity for musicians to learn and be exposed so we believe through our rich culture and music, we can use the festival as a vehicle to sell it,” they said.
The festival will be held annually and in December.
