2024 Pan-Afrika Drum Festival: Celebrating Canadian Multiculturalism Day with Prince Segun Akanni’s Vibrant Plans.

Prince Segun Akanni, the Convener of the Pan-Afrika Drum Festival, has unveiled plans for the 2024 edition of the festival in Canada. The festival, themed “Exploring the Dynamism of African Drums and Canadian Multiculturalism for Global Unity, Inclusivity and Development,” is set to take place on June 27, 2024, at Fuzion Banquet Hall in Mississauga, Ontario, and conclude on July 28, 2024, at Wesley Hall in North York, Ontario.

The festival, organized by The Drum Online Media Incorporation, aims to celebrate Canadian Multiculturalism Day in a grand style, following the success of its maiden edition in 2023. Prince Segun Akanni highlighted that the event will be held in collaboration with the Global Forum for Human Rights and Sustainable Development (GFHRSD) and other organizations, including a United Nations-recognized non-governmental organization.

The activities planned for the second edition encompass a diverse range of events, including interactive sessions with prominent figures like the Premier of Ontario, Mayor of Brampton, Mayor of Toronto, and Mayor of Kitchener, along with engagements in the cultural and tourism sectors. Additionally, there will be entertainment, lecture presentations, art exhibitions, drum competitions, beauty pageants/fashion shows, award presentations, cultural performances, and various colorful side attractions.

An important achievement for the festival is the accreditation received from the Immigration Refugee and Citizenship Canada, enabling a streamlined visa application process for invited guests, cultural icons, and festival enthusiasts from across the globe. This accreditation marks a significant milestone for the event.

Moreover, the festival aims to unite various African Drum festivals into a consolidated event, providing a platform to showcase diverse cultural values and aesthetics on a global stage. Notably, the celebration will commemorate Canadian Multiculturalism Day, recognizing and celebrating Canada’s diverse and pluralistic structure.

An innovative addition to the festival includes the introduction of the inaugural Africa Media Nite Out, intended to honor African journalists for their substantial contributions to journalism in Africa and their efforts in improving African societies.

Prince Akanni, representing the organizing committee, calls upon sponsors and partners to collaborate, aiming for another milestone in promoting cultural tolerance, harmony, and global unity through this event.
