American rapper Kendrick Lamar is set to perform at the BK Arena in Kigali, Rwanda.

Lamar will be headlining the ‘Move Afrika: A Global Citizen Experience’ in December.

This is a new long-term, large-scale effort to pioneer a first-of-its-kind international music touring circuit throughout the continent of Africa.

Move Afrika’s first major music event, Move Afrika: Rwanda, will take place on December 6, 2023.

The grammy award winning star who is the co-founder of pgLang will serve as the Curator of Move Afrika for the next five years, from 2023 until 2028.

Move Afrika is Global Citizen’s latest effort to address the world’s inequities by creating job and entrepreneurship opportunities for the continent’s emerging generations through an annual series of world-class live events.

Showcasing the best of Africa to the world, these events will drive transformative investments within local communities, engage local artists, vendors, agencies and crews, and provide opportunities for on-the-job skill development and training.

Producing a world-class experience for fans and artists alike, Move Afrika will set a new gold-standard for entertainment touring events, increasing demand from international and regional artists to tour in the region and building local capacity within host cities across the continent.

More regional artists will be announced.
