Read: Why Burna Boy & Mr Eazi Are The Right Artists to Bring Afrobeats to the World


"This year, we have a double shot representation with Burna Boy and Mr Eazi," wrote our contributor Joey Akan in an op-ed. "Both musicians are scheduled for Coachella's two weekends in April. Africans who make the trip there will have an extra dose of their culture being served in a space that has long eluded them. When we scream "Afrobeats to the world," we aren't just referring to shows predominantly packed with Africans in the diaspora. We want the music to permeate spaces like these, and grow our cultural influence. Where's a bigger stage then than Coachella? Point us there. We want it all!"

You can live stream both of the artists' sets on Coachella's Youtube channel.

Mr Eazi's Coachella 2019 set will be live streaming on Saturday, April 13 at 9:00 PM Eastern Time.

Burna Boy's Coachella 2019 set will be live streaming on Sunday, April 14 at 7:15 PM Eastern Time.
