Pan African Music Fashion Fashion Runway, is a cultural showcase platform blending contemporary Pan African designers, international runway models, cutting edge fashion with music excellence, while the Game Changer Africa Acknowledgement Award, is the fact that MFR, is going beyond music to arts, history and creativity.

Some of the past recipients include celebrity movie star Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, notable film Director, Kunle Afolayan, Iconic Fashion designer, Lanre Da-Silver media mogul, Guy Bruce, President of Silverbird Group, among others.
“The Game Changer, for us at Africa Fashion League, is the fact that MFR is going beyond music to the arts, history and culture eventually. The plan is to have a signature contemporary showpiece experience as usual with the project looking beyond Nigeria, expanding the platform to include pan African satellite activities in the lead up to MFR 2022 with open days in the art and cultural community at unique venues and galleries across Lagos”.
The theme of the event is, “Fashion Forward: A Call To Action For A Greener And Sustainable Continent, Which Empowers And Unites Young Pan African Creatives”.
It will feature hybrid models as usual, and will hold both virtually and physically to keep over 10,000 fans globally engaged as it is streamed live across different social media platforms.
