Guest Speakers at the symposium moderated by Dr. Vincent Magombe were Ambassador Arikana Chihombori Quao, Kweku Mandela and Dele Farotimi.
First daughter of the late Afrobeat legend Yeni Kuti further informed News Express that the celebration will continue by 8pm today at the Africa Shrine where five top artistes will be performing.
The music stars, according to Yeni, are Femi Kuti, Made, Joeboy, Niniola and Seun Kuti.
