Afri-Anniversary, the event.jpg

We started off in @music-community as Highlife weekend, and ultimately, we became “Afri-tunes” Weekend to encompass the wide genres under the umbrella of the niche: “African tunes.”

We moved to our newly created community on Hive, and we took the challenge head on. As a community, we persevered, struggled and remained consistent together, and now we celebrate one year of our journey on Hive.

As a way of Marking this milestone we planned and actualized three special events:

☆ Firstly, we made the lovely Afri-tunes Branded T-Shirt, which has a QR code that takes you to signup page when scanned.


☆ The second event is the sponsorship of two of our members for an online professional guitar academy managed by one of the best guitarists in Nigeria, and in West Africa.

☆ For the third event, we hosted a music and writing contest, where we received a total of 34 entries: 27 music and 7 writing.


Still basking in the euphoria of the fun and celebration, we received a lovely artwork from @maxwelmarcusart, which is a creative drawing of the Logo of Afri-tunes. We also received a lovely badge sponsored and designed by the wonderful @hivebuzz team.

The celebration, fun, excitement and joy were in abundance!!!



We appreciate all our sponsors and everyone who contributed in various ways to make this event a memorable one for the community!

The Afritunes team and the entire community say

As we said earlier, we intend to provide two of our community subscribers with scholarships if they are interested in learning guitar professionally or raising their levels of proficiency.

The Package includes:

  • A 3-month scholarship plan
  • Little monthly allowance for data subscription

Thus, in selecting our candidates we ensured that those who are selected will value this sponsorship. Hence, the selection was based on the following criteria:

  • Those who indicated interest
  • Have earlier shown to be interested in playing guitar or progressing in their guitar level
  • Have guitar readily available to them
  • Are subscribers of Afri-tunes community

Thus, we are pleased to announce @sleemfit and @sholex94 as the winners of this spot, after considering their application and commitment to music on the chain.

We wish them best of luck as they grow in their knowledge and learning of the guitar.
