The Trace Awards and Festival, a prominent music event and multimedia platform dedicated to African music and cultures, kicked off in Rwanda’s capital, Kigali, on Friday.
The festival’s highlight event was the award ceremony on Saturday, featuring a four-hour live show graced by dozens of top music stars celebrating the creativity and confidence of African and Afro-inspired music and culture.
This event aligns with the 20th anniversary of Trace, the global music powerhouse and Afro-music tastemaker, which has made significant contributions to the growth of Africa’s music industry over the last two decades.

“It will be an unmissable experience for lovers of African and Afro-inspired music,” Olivier said.
