Who We Are
Amplify Africa is a culture brand with a mission to create multiple platforms for the world to experience the beauty and excellence of the African culture through entertainment. For the past 4 years we have worked hard to make sure that the African story is being told properly to the world through our Amplify Africa experience initiative, an event platform. Through this platform, our team has successfully done 100+ events and have created multiple event brands that have brought African talent, Music, fashion, food and culture to the world. Some of the experiences are Afrolituation, a dance party that has now become the biggest African experience party in North America. Made in Africa, the biggest annual African concert and artist showcase in Los Angeles which usually takes place during the BET Awards weekend. And the Afro ball (in partnership with the US Congress) , a high fashion-conscious Gala where we celebrate and honor Africans who are excelling in various industries and amplifying Africa. (We like to call it African MET Gala).
