This year, Mike Aremu introduces AfroGoJazz. He says:
Mike Aremu’s concert promises to be a night of musical wonder. Special guest artist Midé is a singer-songwriter and musician from London with an amazing way of connecting with a listener. His sound has been likened to the likes of Ed Sheeran, James Bay and even the legend Bob Dylan. Also performing will be Femi Tomowo, a Nigerian-British born Jazz guitarist who is also a MOBO award nominated musician. Femi has played beside some big players including George Benson, Omar and Amy Winehouse.
