“FIRST OFF, WE ARE SORRY IT’S TAKEN THIS LONG TO ANNOUNCE PLACE FOR AFRO NATION GHANA THIS YEAR. WE HAVE BEEN DEEP IN TALKS WITH THE AUTHORITIES AND PARTNERS IN GHANA AND AS YOU CAN IMAGINE – DUE TO THE EFFECTS OF COVID-19 AROUND THE GLOBE, WE UNFORTUNATELY CAN’T GO AHEAD WITH OUR AFRO NATION GHANA FESTIVAL IN 2020
“WE WILL BE BACK WITH MORE INFORMATION ABOUT OUR RETURN TO AFRICA IN 2021, ONE THAT IS GOING TO BE A CELEBRATION LIKE NO OTHER. WE ALREADY HAVE SOME UNIQUE AND EXCITING PLANS IN PLACE TO RETURN TO THE MOTHERLAND NEXT REAR, AND WE CANNOT WAIT TO SEE YOU ALL THERE. IT IS GOING TO BE SPECIAL. UNTIL THEN, STAY SAFE AND LOOK AFTER EACH OTHER”, THE STATEMENT ADDED.
