WIth 46 African countries having reported COVID-19 cases so far, and several African countries taking steps to restrict movement within communities in order to quell the spread of the disease, artists will share the critical “Stay Home #With Me” messaging with their audiences.

 

“For the past decade YouTubers have created videos such as Cook with Me, Study with Me, Read with Me, Workout with Me, Meditate with Me, and so on. So the concept of this online music festival is organically in line with what viewers know,” says Addy Awofisayo, content partnership manager for YouTube Africa.

 

“The Stay Home #With Me online music festival seeks to support the well-being of our community, who are increasingly enduring this disease in isolation – a state that can affect people’s mental, emotional and spiritual health,” Awofisayo says.
