Afro Street Festival which had seen a gradual rise in reception by the Port Harcourt youth had to take a break last year, with the ban on public gatherings as a result of the deadly pandemic.

But this year, the program has returned with many flavors and spark to light up the lives of the Port Harcourt people. Unlike previous editions that held for just a day, that had many people wishing the festival held for more than a day. This year’s edition is a ‘dream come true’.
