Africa Connect Entertainment is an agency born from the love of all things Africa. Being Ghanaian born Americans, two cousins Christian Kofi Bannerman and Enoch Kofi Bannerman knew the lack of representation that Africans had here in the states specifically in New York.
Traditional African artists and musicians have toured the states with minor promotion agencies who did a great job but the powerhouse that will serve and promote all things African is and was lacking. Being music lovers and promoters of all African arts, the cousin wanted to invest in the music and arts coming from Africa to the Diaspora, as such Africa Connect Entertainment Inc company was created in 2018.
