A popular Nigerian singer, Yemi Alade, will lead other celebrities to the Creative Africa Nexus Weekend 2022 event in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire, later in the month.

In a statement sent to Merrymakers, the African Export-Import Bank, which is sponsoring the event, noted that anyone from Africa and the Diaspora who is interested in being part of the rapidly expanding African creative and cultural industry can register for the event.

The statement added that the event is a three-day gathering of creatives, investors, industry leaders, businesses and government representatives, from across Africa and the Diaspora, leading up to the next CANEX Summit.

It added, “The aim is to create business-to-business and business-to-government networking and deal-making opportunities. “This will be another important step in Afreximbank’s continued roll-out and implementation of its CANEX programme, a multi-faceted intervention to support and develop Africa’s emerging creatives sector.”

It added that the event will avail participants a chance to hear and learn from some of the leading voices from Africa and beyond in music, film, fashion, crafts, visual arts, literature and gaming.

Participants will also have the opportunity to exhibit fashion, and art and crafts in a dynamic marketplace; as well as connect with potential partners, participate in panel discussions and master classes and leverage a range of other networking opportunities.
