Femme Africa Presents The First Ever ‘Femme Fest’

Save the date: December 12

After many years of championing African women in the music industry, Femme Africa, a women-led organisation run by Ayomide Dokunmu is taking on its most ambitious project yet: its first-ever Femme Fest. Promised to be a day of music, entertainment, fashion, food and more, Femme Africa’s first-ever festival is set to make its debut on the Detty December lineup this year–and we couldn’t be more ecstatic.

Femme Africa has filled a much-needed space in the music and entertainment industry, seeking to bridge the disparate gaps between female artists and their male counterparts in Nigeria’s androcentric society. This has culminated in a dedicated series of workshops, panels, live showcases, of which Femme Africa has previously held four hot-ticket editions since its inception in 2018.

Now, with a new year just days away and women in Afropop making boundless leaps across the music industry, both here in Nigeria and the diaspora, Femme Fest will celebrate the best of the crop inviting artists such as Teni the Entertainer, Liya, Lady Donli, Somadina, SOLIS, SGaWD, Deto Black, Merry-Lynn, Ria Sean, and more, to its inaugural event. Femme Fest will also have an all-female Dj lineup featuring Dj Honeeay, Dj Dayzee, and DJ Sensei Lo.

Currently, the event is scheduled to be held on Sunday 12th, December at Amore Gardens, Lekki, and tickets are on sale at Tix Africa. Let’s support the girls!
