The third annual Afro-Carib Festival (ACF), set to take place on Saturday (February 25) at the Miramar Regional Park Amphitheater in Miramar, Florida has released its much-anticipated lineup and reggae artiste Koffee has been named the main feature.
The Afro-Carib festival, presented by Visit Lauderdale, will celebrate the blended cultures that evolved through a shared bond rooted in African origins. These powerful bonds have manifested to create a people rich in music, culture, and cuisine.
Patrons will be treated to live performances by a carefully curated roster of unique, soulful artistes representing reggae, Afrobeats, Afropop, reggaeton, salsa, and other musical genres from the Caribbean and African diaspora.
The Grammy Kid, who is also a fan favourite, has been tasked with headlining the popular music and culture festival.
Best known for her viral hit Toast, Koffee, at the age of 18, was the youngest and first female reggae artiste to win a Grammy for Best Reggae Album.
Meanwhile, Nigeria-born singer and songwriter, Tekno will also perform on the Afro-Caribbean stage.
Following the release of his 2016 international hit, Pana, the self-proclaimed Afropop king and producer has been heating up the digital and radio airwaves.
Since then he has produced a steady stream of hits for himself and others. Tekno is now based in the United States and spreads positive vibes through melodies laced over a perfect blend of Afrobeats and Afropop beats.
Grammy-nominated, Cuba-born Jacob Forever who is known for his artistic diversity between bachata, urban, and reggaeton, using fusions of rap and reggaeton, will also perform at the festival.
