#OKAYAFRICADC Azonto Fiesta IV!

Don't miss out on Okayafrica DC's latest installment of Azonto Fiesta this Wednesday!


Azonto will never die! Kukere and azonto are the hottest dances hands-down. Since the inception of #OKAYAFRICADC's Azonto Fiesta, there's been a deep demand to keep it going. In the name of promoting the latest music and culture coming from the diaspora, Okayafrica continues it’s wave of mind-wide parties in the nation’s capital Washington, D.C. This Wednesday, November 20 DJ’s Underdog  and Mate Masie will grace the stage at Tropicalia for Azonto Fiesta IV! Anything is fair game, but you’ll probably hear more kwaito, hiplife, kuduro, South African house, zouk, soukous, coupe decale and, of course, azonto! No pretentiousness, no commercial radio nonsense, and no drama. See all info in the flyer below and join the event on Facebook!

It has been more than 30 years since the premiere of the beloved classic comedy Coming to America. Its highly anticipated sequel promises to be greater than its predecessor. The film will be accompanied with two albums—Coming 2 America original motion picture soundtrack and Rhythms of Zamunda, whose tracklist is inspired by the movie. Both albums, which are currently available on all major streaming platforms, feature African music royalty Tiwa Savage, Tekno, Larry Gaaga and Alpha P, who joined a select group of artists from around the continent to produce these tracklists.

Still blazing charts after the success of his debut album Old Romance, Tekno has a growing list of impressive collaborations with artists like Davido, Drake, Beyonce, to name a few. The singer does not have not one, but two of his hit songs featured; "Waka Waka" is featured on the official soundtrack and "Skeletun" on Rhythms of Zamunda.
