It is no longer news that Global Citizen is working with creative imprint, pgLang to bring to the world, Move Afrika: A Global Citizen Experience — a new long-term, large-scale effort to pioneer a first-of-its-kind international music touring circuit throughout the African continent over the next five years.

Move Afrika: Rwanda will be headlined by Grammy Award, Pulitzer prize winning artist, and co-founder of pgLang, Kendrick Lamar. Zuchu and Bruce Melodie are also set to light up the stage as performers at the show alongside DJ TOXXYK, musician Ariel Wayz, media personality Jackie Lumbasi, comedian and media personality Arthur NkusI, and award winning choreographer Sherrie Silver.

It’s all going down at the BK Arena in Kigali from 8pm CAT and naturally, we want every Global Citizen attending to have the time of their lives. We’re sure you’ve planned your outfit, cleared album space on your phone, and created a group chat to make sure you and your besties are on the same page — so we’re here to answer any questions you might have to make your planning a little easier, and your enjoyment of the night a lot smoother. We have prepared a list of everything you need to know before you head to the BK Arena to make memories with us
