Watch Black Coffee's Coachella 2018 Set Live Here

Watch Black Coffee's Coachella live performance right here on OkayAfrica.

Update 4/20: Black Coffee's Coachella weekend 2 set is scheduled for Friday, April 20 at 7:20-8:10 p.m. PST on the Mojave stage.

Music festival season is officially here, and we're buzzing with excitement about the artists repping Africa and the diaspora this year.

The first of our artists to watch at Coachella this year is Black Coffee, who is set to perform on Friday evening (April 13).

If you can't make it to California this year, don't let the FOMO kick in just yet—Coachella will be streaming his entire set live on its YouTube channel at 10.55PM EST.


This is will be Black Coffee's second time performing at Coachella, as he previously brought his beats to the music festival in 2016. The South African DJ and producer has been busy since, even working on Drake's More Life album last year, and surely gaining more fans in the process.

Coachella will be streaming most of the artists performing during its first weekend, including Beyoncé, Wizkid, The Weeknd and more. The second weekend of the festival (April 20-22) will not be streamed live.

You can see the entire weekend's streaming schedule right here.

Listen to Tems' New EP 'If Orange Was A Place'

The buzzing Nigerian is also announcing her signing to Since '93/RCA Records and her placement as Apple Music's Up Next artist.

Tems is striking while the iron's hot and sharing her new 5-song EP, If Orange Was A Place.

The new release comes a few days after she dropped its lead single, "Crazy Tings," an addictive and bounce-heavy track produced by Ghanaian beatmaker GuiltyBeatz.

If Orange Was A Place also features a single guest appearance from American singer Brent Faiyaz — who lends his vocals to "Found" — and production from Jonah Christian. It was mixed and mastered by Spax.

The new EP comes alongside the news that Tems has signed to Since '93/RCA Records and been announced as Apple Music's latest Up Next artist.

Tems has been a highly-buzzing name in the last month with her feature on Drake's Certified Lover Boy, in which she appears on the song "Fountains," and for the massive popularity of her single alongside Wizkid, "Essence," which recently got a Justin Bieber remix.
