On Tuesday, December 13, 2022, it emerged that award-winning Ghanaian singer, Stonebwoy was going to perform at the 2022 FIFA World Cup Fan Fest in Doha, Qatar on December 16, 2022.
The reports online got many people congratulating the Burniton Music boss, and finally, he has also come out to confirm the news and reveal how he feels about it.
In a post on his social media pages, Stonebwoy happily disclosed how excited he was about the feats he has achieved with the caption: “From Ashaiman to the whole wide world! Representing live for ???????? @fifaworldcup.”
Other African musicians who will be mounting the stage include ‘Buga’ hitmaker, Kizz Daniel and Patoranking. Also, dancehall singer Sean Paul will perform at the FIFA Fan Festival.
The FIFA Fan Festivals are public viewing events organized by FIFA and the host cities during the FIFA World Cup. FIFA Fan Festivals (initially named FIFA Fan Fests) followed the success of public viewing at the 2002 FIFA World Cup in South Korea and became an essential part of the tournament since the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany.
Fan Festivals take place in iconic locations of the host cities and feature broadcasts of football matches on giant screens, live concerts, parties, food, beverages, and other activities and entertainment.
In 2022, FIFA reintroduced Fan Festivals under the new name for the 2022 FIFA World Cup held in Qatar – this is according to Wikipedia.
