A couple of weeks ago, the Homecoming team revealed the first few details of their second edition of the festival. Although we got the scoop of the fashion brands that will be in attendance, as well as topics that will be covered at their panel talks, the most exciting detail was withheld.
Finally, the lineup for the Homecoming Live Show has been released, and this wide-ranging bill of artists has left us even more excited for the Easter weekend.
Last year, the live show was undoubtedly the climax of the entire weekend.
The most iconic model of all time, Naomi Campbell graced the stage as the host; Odunsi, Santi and Zamir delivered their first performance of the cult anthem, “Alte Cruise”; and Skepta performed alongside afropop superstar, Wizkid.
This year, Santi, Odunsi, Wizkid and Skepta will be returning to the Homecoming stage, joined by a few of our favourite Nigerian artists, such as Teni, Simi, and Niniola. Mavin’s latest signee, Rema also features on the bill, making this his first major appearance since his breakout.
As well as Skepta, the Homecoming Live Show will bring together two other international acts, Octavian — who recently released his show-stopping debut album to much fanfare — as well as South African female rapper, Sho Madjozi.
We’ve been promised many more special guests, and if they’re as thrilling as the artists on the lineup so far, the live show is going to be epic!
