Global Citizen Returns To Ghana With ‘Move Afrika’

Ghanaians will have another Global Citizen experience this year as the international education and advocacy organization prepares to conduct an event called "Move Afrika: A Global Citizen Experience Tour in 2024."

According to a post by the Global Citizen page on X, the event will take place in Accra, Ghana, and Kigali, Rwanda.

The article also names Ghana's President Nana Akufo-Addo and PGLang, an American independent multimodal creative communications business that specializes in music and visual media production, as event collaborators.

"Accra, have you missed us? We have exciting news: we are bringing #MoveAfrika to Ghana in collaboration with President @NAkufoAddo and @pglang! "Accra will join Kigali, Rwanda, as a host city for the Move Afrika: A Global Citizen Experience tour in 2024," they said on X.

Move Afrika is a long-term initiative to pioneer a first-of-its-kind international music tour across Africa, boosting economic investment, creating jobs, and promoting entrepreneurship in each host country.

Global Citizen's mission is to use intersectionality to stimulate the movement to alleviate extreme poverty and promote social justice and equity. Hugh Evans, Simon Moss, and Wei Soo formed the group, which strives to enhance the number and effectiveness of people who take action in favor of the cause.

In 2012, New York hosted the first Global Citizen Festival. It was part of a movement to eradicate extreme poverty; by participating in charity activities on the website, such as watching videos and signing petitions, fans can receive free festival tickets.

In addition, the organizers hope to make the event "global" by live-streaming events in public places. Since 2015, the festival's objectives have been closely tied with the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which include 17 tasks to eliminate extreme global poverty by 2030.

The festival relocated to Ghana on Saturday, September 24, 2022, and was held in the Black Star Square in Accra.

Ghanaian artists Sarkodie, Stonebwoy, Yaw Tog, Kwesi Arthur, and Gyakie delivered outstanding performances at the event.

Usher Raymond, SZA, and H.E.R. from the United States were among the performers, as were Stomzy, a British act of Ghanaian heritage, and Tems from Nigeria.

Many Ghanaians praised the event's production excellence and urged event organisers in Ghana to follow suit.
