Watch: Afropop Gets the Impact Award at globalFEST's Wavelengths

It was our honor here at Afropop Worldwide to receive the 2022 Impact Award on Jan. 27, as part of the Wavelengths global music industry conference, produced by globalFEST.

Just as globalFEST’s concert showcase moved to all online due to coronavirus safety concerns, Wavelengths took place online. While it’s no substitute for meeting in person, having the panels, pitch session and seminars of Wavelength available online does offer some advantages. For instance, you can watch Georges, Sean and Banning receive the Impact Award today, right now.

The whole thing is worth checking out when you have a moment, but the Afropop-specific section starts below at 11:50 and includes a beautiful introduction from friend-of-the-program Eric Wainaina.
