Nigerian music and businessman Mr. Eazi has announced the return of his highly patronized event series ‘DETTY RAVE’ with a twist to this year’s.
This year’s will start with a tour of Ghana’s universities and culminate in the much-anticipated return of the main Detty Rave in December.
Between July 31st and August 31st, the Road to Detty Rave tour will take place. The three confirmed universities are the University of Cape Coast, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), and the University of Ghana (Legon), with a fourth university to be chosen based on the results of an online poll. Mr Eazi will emcee each event, which will be broadcast live on African television and feature performances by surprise guests.
Detty Rave has been a highlight of West Africa’s #DettyDecember calendar since its start in 2017, bringing an all-star cast of foreign performers to Accra, including Rick Ross, Koffee, Giggs, Afro B, Kranium, King Promise, Simi, Busiswa, and KiDI, as well as sets by Africa’s finest DJs.
Following 2019’s Rick Ross-headlined edition, Covid 19 caused Mr Eazi to put the event on hold, but with demand for outdoor entertainment at an all-time high, he’s bringing it back with the theme “Da Funk.”
“Ever since I coined the term that has become synonymous with December enjoyment in West Africa, #DettyDecember, Detty Rave has been an event that everyone counts down to,” Mr Eazi said. “It’s become a pilgrimage. It’s always been fun curating the experience and bringing people all over the world to rave in Ghana, so it’s beautiful to be bringing back this year after two whole years apart.”
