The Dreamville rapper will join the two Nigerian stars at the Eko Hotel in April.

J. Cole is set to touch down in Lagos for the first time for a performance alongside two of Nigeria's biggest names, Wizkid and Davido.

Islanders made their mark on films from all geographic regions at the 2018 Pan-African Film Festival. This festival's selections captured the evolution of language, spiritual practices, food and art of a people whose descendants were forcefully removed from the African continent.
