Aramide, Boutross, Gabiro to perform at One Vibe Africa’s Madaraka Festival & Covid-19 Campaign



One Vibe Africa is proud to unveil the sixth annual Madaraka Festival, which will be streamed on One Vibe TV on YouTube on June 27th.

One Vibe Africa, Billian Music Family Foundation, Tribeless Youth, Afro Diaspora SF, Dope Music Festival, Northwest Arts Streaming Hub, Homeland Events, Gig Dynamics, and other organizations, sponsors, and partners are proud to bring to you the 2020 virtual Madaraka Festival on June 27th, which will support 500 small businesses run by women in Mathare, Manyatta and Nyalenda slums in Kenya.

Madaraka Festival brings Africa’s finest musicians and creatives together with world renowned artists and innovators for a celebration of music and civic purpose. In 2019, this international cultural extravaganza was a culmination of an entire week of activities happening in Africa for the first time, and featured live music, storytelling, poetry, exhibitions, workshops, and a film festival.

Since 2014, Madaraka Festival has attracted more than 10,000 patrons & reached over 12 million people digitally. This is an amazing opportunity to strengthen One Vibe's work, deepen the relationship between East African communities, Diaspora and Kenya and foster growing partnerships.In these unprecedented times, it is vital that we stand in solidarity with one another. What better way to attack the pandemic COVID-19 than as the Global Village that we are! The current crisis isn’t just impacting an individual, company, organization, region or country - it is literally turning our worlds upside down.

The $50,000 we are hoping to raise through Panga Bizz After COVID-19 will be used to provide grants of $100 to each female-owned business.
