“We are proud to present Pan African 8th annual Music Fashion Runway #MFR Hybrid (physical and online) Edition and Game Changer Africa Acknowledgement Award #GCAA

Happy to see return of our physical event after two years of online predominance (due to the pandemic) whilst shining the spotlight on the perils of environment and climate change on the Continent.

#MFR2022 promises its signature contemporary / cultural showpiece experience. We have expanded the platform to include Pan African satelite activities in the lead up to MFR2022 ‘Road to #MFR’ with ‘open days’ in the Art and Cultural community at iconic venues Museums and Galleries across Lagos.

Pan African 8th annual Music Fashion Runway will be streamed Live via our social media Platforms – as was last year’s successful event – which opened the pioneering music and fashion platform to a global virtual international audience of over 10,000 watching live.

This year’s 2022 hybrid edition (fully physical and Virtual) will still embrace our international online fan base as well as physical guests at this stunning location.

Our priority as always is to produce in a safe and secure environment, a first class event of live music excellence, whilst showcasing Pan African fashion, established designers and international runway models.
