Megan Thee Stallion will headline Afro Nation Puerto Rico in March, described as the “world’s biggest Afrobeats festival.”

The “Hot Girl Summer” rapper will be joined by more than 20 acts, including Nigerian Grammy winner Wizkid, at the three-day event taking place March 24-26, 2022, in Balneario de Carolina, Puerto Rico. Another Nigerian artist, Tems, who is featured on Drake‘s Certified Lover Boy album, will also perform. She is a featured artist on Wizkid’s song “Essence,” which is nominated for a Grammy for Best Global Music Performance.

Megan is also headlining Afro Nation Portugal, which is scheduled for July and is billed as the world’s number one beach festival. Wizkid, as well as Burna Boy and Beenie Man, will perform at the three-day festival, which will be held July 1-3 at The Algarve in Portimao, Portugal.

Megan Thee Stallion enjoyed an incredible year in 2021, and posted a recap video on New Year’s Eve. She fulfilled her late mother’s dream on December 11 by graduating with a bachelor’s degree in health administration from Texas Southern University. The next day, Megan received the 18th Congressional District Humanitarian Award.

In December, the Houston MC also announced a new production deal with Netflix. The previous month, she was honored as one of Glamour‘s Women of the Year. Meg also won American Music Awards for Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Album for her debut album, Good News; Favorite Rap/Hip-Hop Artist; and Favorite Trending Song for her hit “Body.”

In addition, Megan is nominated for two Grammy Awards: Best Rap Performance for “Thot Sh**,” and Album of the Year for Lil Nas X‘s Montero, thanks to her contributions as songwriter on “Dolla Sign Slime.”
