It is my honor to participate in FESTAC Africa 2023 in Arusha, Tanzania. It is a long overdue Festival of African values, history, culture and accomplishments focusing on music, art, dance, food, agriculture, trade and investments.
The spirit of Africa could not be broken by the Transatlantic Slave Trade or colonialism. It manifests in a creative and dynamic culture that unites Africa with its Diaspora and entrances the world.
As we regain our self-confidence let us focus the power of our Pan-African culture towards peace, prosperity and sustainable development.
As my father would say, “Up you mighty people, you can accomplish what you will”.
I look forward to participating in celebrations of Africa Finest Brands on Africa Day Gala Dinner & Awards·
Please join me in Arusha to renew our bonds of unity and enjoy each other’s company.
