#TheCookoutAfrica: a Songwriting Masterclass with Vincent Berry II – Southern Africa edition
On Friday 28th August 2020, at 18:00 CAT, the Intra-African Trade Fair (IATF2021) is excited to present 6-time Grammy nominated songwriter: Vincent Le Carl Berry II, for a masterclass, especially designed for the music industry of Southern Africa.

Powered by Afreximbank, the Masterclass, entitled #TheCookoutAfrica, is a live collaborative songwriting experience, to engage participants in creative writing, group function, reflection, peer learning, peer interaction and practice.

Vincent Berry II is personally inviting upcoming & professional songwriters from Angola, Botswana, Eswatini, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa,
Zambia and Zimbabwe, to sign-up for this unique interactive and educational experience, that will see a song written in real-time, through a truly collaborative process (creatively & legally), between Southern Africa based songwriters and himself.

Vincent Berry II is most celebrated for being the lead writer of ‘Sandcastles’, on Beyonce’s highly acclaimed project “Lemonade”. “Lemonade” instantly became a pop culture phenomenon. The album and film provoked an intense worldwide discussion about race, feminism, social media and the music industry.

Continuing this path of success, Berry has participated in six Grammy nominated projects over the past eight years. Most recently with J. Cole & Dreamville on the “Revenge of the Dreamer III” - a 62nd Grammy Award Nominee for the Best Rap Album of the Year.

Berry has also written for Akon, Ari Lennox, Babyface, Brandy, Chris Brown, Estelle, Mary J. Blige, Migos, Sean Paul, Shaggy, Ty Dolla Sign and Usher, to name a few.

#TheCookout is a resource that empowers influencers and institutions to highlight their community's creativity, as well as promoting team building and collaboration.
