I will be taking part in the inspirational Nigerians panel at the Africa Rocks Expo this Sunday, a one-day event celebrating African culture and showing why Africa is a great place to visit, work and do business in.
This year’s expo focuses on Nigeria and “aims to dispel the misconceptions and show people that Nigeria is forward-looking, vibrant, innovative and a great place to invest,’ says organiser Chinnelle Anichebe of The Culture Initiative.
Major exhibitors who are already signed up to appear at Africa Rocks include African fashion boutiques, ARISE magazine, the London Afrobeat Collective and the School of African and Oriental Studies. There will also be seminars, speed networking sessions, Q&A sessions , and the premiere of a new animated TV show. On the entertainment stage, there’ll be fashion shows featuring top Nigerian designers and live performances.
Come along, and say hi if you do!
