Afrochella is a Pan-African festival celebrating culture through Food, Art, Music and Fashion. The Core values are centred around the community as they aim to be a vessel for African Millennials to invest in their heritage and native culture. The Afrochella Talks is one of the many ways Afrochella uses the community to ensure educational support for Ghanaians and Africans at large.
