Afro Nation announces Europe’s biggest Amapiano lineup ever

Turning a corner into 2022 with the summer season in sight, Afro Nation looks ahead to a grand return to Portugal’s coast with another massive lineup announcement today.

Afro Nation is changing the game in 2022. With more names to come, and already packed with the planet’s largest electrifying Afrobeats, Afro house, reggae & dancehall acts, this year offers something new. Always one step ahead and the first to bring new sounds from Africa to the world, Afro Nation Portugal is excited to reveal the most impressive and comprehensive Amapiano line up ever seen before in Europe, or even the world.

On a huge new dedicated stage hosting heavy hitters such as Pretoria’s biggest breakout MC Focalistic known for his blend of rap with Amapiano and collaborations with the likes of Davido, Moonchild Sanelly and Diamond Platnumz, and the true pioneer and “king of Amapiano” Kabza De Small with his unmistakable hit tracks like ‘Abalele’ and ‘Sponono’ ft. Wizkid & Burna Boy. No line up would be complete without the now London-based twin brothers Major League DJz, who have been bringing this distinctive sound to the world stage alongside the award-winning and chart-topping DJ Maphorisa.

The list continues, spanning all the artists responsible for taking over global dance culture in the past 12 months – including the “Female Boss of Amapiano” DBN Gogo, the “landlord of Amapiano” De Mthuda, as well as Juls, Kamo Mphela, Mr Jazziq, Uncle Waffles, Vigro Deep and Young Stunna. South Africa’s underground sound is sweeping the world, and Afro Nation is the first to celebrate this scene with a huge dedicated stage, combining all these names to create the hottest party soundtrack on Praia Da Rocha Beach this summer.

Also announced today is a highly anticipated show from new headliner Chris Brown, as well as the UK’s masked phenomenon Midas The Jagaban, one of 2021’s biggest breakthroughs Pa Salieu, and fast rising London newcomer and Dave collaborator ShaSimone. These names join an already stacked bill featuring Burna Boy, Wizkid, Megan Thee Stallion, Beanie Man, Koffee, Naira Marley, Patoranking, Rema, Ruger, Tekno, Tems and many more.

The Afro Nation Portugal 2022 pre-sale begins Thursday 27th January 9am GMT before going on general sale Friday 28th January at 9am GMT. For more information and tickets visit
