Today, Culture Management Group, organizers of AfroFuture, formerly known as Afrochella, have announced the first set of artistes to thrill it's audience.

Davido, J Hus and Black Sherif to headline Afro Future 2023
AfroFuture kicked off in 2017, changing its name last year due to a legal action championed by Coachella.
Entering into it it's 7th edition, the two-day festival will have these global music heavyweights at a time when it's biggest competitor Afro Nation will not happen.
Asked whether AfroFuture was still bound to face competition, Randy Walker, a media and marketing executive said:
"a few names come to mind, but there is currently no direct competitor if we're looking at global appeal, scale and quality of experience".
The festival over the past years has been riddled with several issues including fake ticketing to crowd control and traffic issues.
While the marketing executive tips the event to have its most successful year yet following the expansion efforts on the continent and Afro Nation's exit, he believes the current economic climate and other factors could stagante things for the festival's organizers.
