Afrique C'est Chic: Celebrate the Return of EVERYDAY AFRIQUE With This Photo Gallery

Our photo gallery of the 2016 editions of EVERYDAY AFRIQUE is about good music, good vibes and good people. Check it out.

DIASPORA—The first summer holiday weekend is coming up in New York which means our infamous EVERYDAY AFRIQUE party is around the corner. Brought to you by OkayAfrica and our friends at Everyday People, the highly anticipated rooftop party always brings great music by DJs mOma, Rich Knight, CortegaKashaka and Underdog.


In anticipation, we've put together a photo gallery of last year's good vibes and beautiful people partying at Brooklyn's Output. In 2016, South Africa's AKA, Tanzania and South Africa's Allan Kingdom and Nigeria's OWO graced the stage with their high-energy performances. Some EVERYDAY AFRIQUE fam had the opportunity to be Laolu Senbanjo's canvas for his Sacred Art of the Ori paintings.

So, get your tickets for EVERYDAY AFRIQUE returning this Memorial Day and feast your eyes on our photo gallery from the summer '16 festivities below, featuring gorgeous images by Ginny Suss, Leon Williams, Kadeem Johnson, Johnette Reed, Aaron Leaf.
