The Ibrahim Governance Weekend is the flagship event of the Mo Ibrahim Foundation, held every year in a different African country.
This three-day event convenes prominent African political and business leaders, representatives from civil society, multilateral and regional institutions as well as Africa’s major international partners to debate issues of critical importance to Africa.
The weekend begins with a Leadership Ceremony, which celebrates the Ibrahim Laureates and, if the Prize has been awarded that year, gives the opportunity to honour the new Laureate.
A whole day is then dedicated to the Ibrahim Forum, a high-level discussion forum which tackles the challenges facing Africa and sets out priorities for action.
The weekend concludes with a spectacular free concert at Independence Square on Saturday, 21 November 2015, highlighting some of the best performers of the continent and a football match showcasing outstanding African football.
So what does all this have to do with us? Well Angélique Kidjo happened to be our first wardrobe and styling engagement ever. We spent a full three days with her getting her looks sorted out for the big concert and also ended up on stage during the performance!
You can see about our last chaotic day before the concert here.
The event was broadcast live and is available there to watch in full above.
