“I think the narrative with Black communities in America, as well as the continent at large, has always been extraction; it’s always people come and they extract our resources, they extract our labour, they extract our value, and so with this Black Star Line Festival, our purpose is to not only come and profit or capitalise from the continent, but to really bring resources, and talent, an we’re working on providing clean water,” Vic Mensa elaborated.

“We’re partnering with some organisations, one of which my father started that we’ve already built a water hole, in Koftown [Koforidua] where my family is,” the Hiphop celebrity revealed.
