Though BAFEST is brand new, Access Bank’s charge to showcase the best of what’s Born in Africa has been on going for years now. The bank has consistently partnered with a number of events that work to inspire and celebrate Africa and her people. Events such as the Access Bank Lagos City Marathon, Art X Lagos, The African International Film Festival, and a series of fashion and film happenings, all work in synergy to confirm the bank’s belief in Africa’s talent. Further driving a change in the narrative, in order to project Africa as a hub for entertainment and creativity that is ready and open for business.
