Africa!Days 2016: MoneyGram celebrates Nigeria, Cameroon, Morocco in Germany

The global money transfer company MoneyGram has announced its Africa!Days programme for 2016. While the programme last year focussed on football competitions in the African community, this time the event will also feature music, dance and the arts, said Peter Leis, spokesman of za:media, the communication agency organising the event on behalf of MoneyGram.

In Hamburg, MoneyGram will partner the Nigerians in Diaspora Organisation (NIDO) Germany to stage the 4th Nigerian Business & Investment Summit on 30 September and the Leadership Award Ceremony & Dinner, the following day.
The two events, at which more than 500 guests are expected, are to mark the independence celebrations of Africa’s most populous nation.

On 15 October, the Africa!Days 2016 train will move to Frankfurt am Main, where a Gala Evening of the German-Moroccan Culture will be held. Again on 12 November, a Gala Evening of Many Cultures will hold in the financial metropolis. About 1,000 persons are expected at both events, organised in collaboration with Aamana e.V. to showcase the cultural richness of the north African country. Several Moroccan artistes will perform at the events.

Moreover, a two-day event dedicated to the Cameroonian community will take place in Berlin on 29-30 October. A podium discussion and an exhibition will be held on 29 October in Berlin Wedding. The exhibition will run for 10 days and is expected to be visited by members of the Cameroonian Diaspora in the federal capital city. A football tournament will be held the following day, which will be rounded up with a Gala Evening. The activities, organised in co-operation with FéeFée e.V., are expected to attract between 700 and 1,000 visitors. // Sola Jolaoso
