Meet The Team

Kweku Amoako

Founder & CEO 

Afropolitan Cities was created as a result of Kweku's conviction that the enormous human and social capital wealth in the Diaspora cannot be harnessed for socio-economic development in the Diaspora and in Africa unless the cultural divide in the Diaspora is addressed. Hence in 2010, Kweku walked away from a thriving business consulting career to pursue avenues to galvanize and unite Diaspora communities through music and culture. He relaunched his career as a DJ and within two years became a cultural icon and one of the most sought after DJs in the US. Within the same time frame, he also launched DrumPulse Entertainment - A premiere transcultural and multimedia brand. DrumPulse develops partnerships with corporate brands to explore, build and grow underserved multicultural markets. The company creates win-win opportunities for communities and corporations through unique small and large scale cultural experiences.
