Breaking the ice, award-winning Nigerian Afrobeats artist, Fireboy DML has been confirmed as a guest speaker at this year’s Forbes Under 30 Summit Africa.
Following its successful first-ever event in 2022, Forbes Under 30 Summit Africa has returned for a second round to the world’s greatest growth market, Africa.
Set to take place in Botswana this year on April 23-26, the four-day event promises to be bigger and better, with a more engaging and highlighting experience for all attendees, as the world’s most elite young entrepreneurs and game-changers will convene again to one special place. It is a special event guaranteed to keep you talking for years to come, and will set your mood up high as one of the world’s best artists graces the scene.
What makes this new artist even more special is his Nigerian roots. Since his breakout song in 2019, Fireboy DML continues to change the world through his amazing ability to fuse Afrobeats, R&B, Pop, and Soul into one unique sound that people can’t stop jamming to. His recent song “Peru” featuring English singer and songwriter, Ed Sheeran continues to permeate the airwaves as a chart-topping single and is recognized as one of the best tunes of the century since its release back in 2021.
Having been announced as the official brand ambassador for the TECNO Spark series, Fireboy’s career has since soared to new heights over time. Getting the green light and being recognized for his positive image, Fireboy has been able to capture the hearts of many through his songs, both young and old.
As a young man who embraces such positivity and energy has therefore given him the chance to be recognized as one of the guest speakers at this year’s annual Forbes Under 30 Summit Africa.
Across four days in the country’s capital, Gaborone, it will harness the power of entrepreneurial capitalism amid the continent whose growth will help define the 21st century. As with every Under 30 Summit, the social and cultural opportunities will be world-class, hearing from government, venture capital, and business role models, and providing inspiration for the newest and next generation of leaders.
