Chance the Rapper and Vic Mensa will be headlining Ghana’s iconic Black Star Square for their newly announced joint concert dubbed the Black Star Line Festival.
Slated for January, January 6, 2023, in Accra, the festival seeks to “unite and build a bridge between black people of the diaspora and the globe, with the continent.” The event draws its name from political activist Marcus Garvey’s short-lived but influential shipping company, founded with the intention of connecting Black people across the global economy.
“Everything we’re doing is with the goal of uniting and building a bridge between black people of the diaspora and the globe, with the continent,” Mensa said in a statement. “And Ghana is the gateway to all of that.” The pair did not reveal a lineup as part of their announcement.
