The event is expected to be attended by top African diplomats in Turkey, African Heads of State and Prime Ministers as well as governors and mayors of major cities and states in the continent.
Anu, otherwise called Lady Ekwe, is known for her velvety voice and sonorous renditions as well as an energetic percussionist deft on Ekwe, a male dominated African musical instrument from the Eastern extraction of Nigeria but which she has made her musical signature.
The entertainer will showcase her talent in the global event which is focusing on exploring the business aspects of tourism, culture and entertainment between African countries and Turkey.
