3 days to go! Solos London Countdown - UK’s Largest Afro-Gospel Festival
It's finally here! The UK’s largest urban Gospel music festival Solos London is just days away and you cannot afford to miss it! The sold-out event on Saturday 21st October at live music venue XOYO in trendy Shoreditch attracts a young, diverse, and fashion-conscious Christian audience. The incredible lineup features Nigerian-born Gospel music sensation Marizu ‘big Rizu’ as headline with Canadian-based artist Kojo Dave, both making their first official UK appearances at Solos London.
In addition, the UK’s own Afro-gospel Queen Naffymar will also be taking to the stage with her smooth beats and vocals. Other artists include DJ Shunz, DAYASOUL, Miriam Nyarko, PGGM, K.Lewis and PJ Greaves. Solos London presents the best Afrocentric sounds in Nu Gospel with a blend of R&B, Hip Hop, Soul, Pop, Afrobeats and Amapiano.
"Six years strong, Friendszone Live proudly presents Solos London – a vibrant urban gospel celebration. With faith and AfroGospel rhythms, we uplift and amplify, united with kindred platforms. Illuminating hearts, we spread the rhythm of faith across the UK, because the gospel changes everything." -Emmanuel Farinu, founder
Last year’s sold-out Solos London at Clapham Grand featured on BBC1 Sunday Morning Live. Always ahead of the curve, Solos London is known for an artist lineup with the best-emerging talent to watch. Organizers FZL Events have been hosting live music events since 2015 featuring names such as CalledOut, Happi, AEO, Keys the Prince, Asha Elia, and Fasina among previous performers.
The inspiration for Solos London is: "How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?"(Romans 10:14 NIV) Solos London aims to present the gospel in a way that is accessible and relevant. Current artists’ worship-inspired music and lyrics speak directly to the hearts of a generation. It is no coincidence that Solos London has become the largest Afro-Gospel music event in the UK today.
