This Is What 'An OkayAfrica Party' With Davido Looked Like

In Pictures: Davido and OkayAfrica's NYC release party for A Good Time.

Last Saturday, November 23, we hosted a huge blow out for Davido's brand new album, A Good Time, at Brooklyn venue Schimanski.
The club was packed-out from start to finish as DJ Ecool, DJ Nani, DJ AQ, DJ Mohogany, and Blaq.Pages set the sounds to the night, which also featured live drumming from Soca Warrior Jay and some breakout dance moments. The night was hosted by Young Prince and MC Lolahstic.
Our very special guest, Davido, who stopped by in style and went through some of his massive hits for the crowd. At the night's peak hour, Davido sang "Risky," his latest A Good Time single alongside Popcaan, and "Blow My Mind." He also had an acoustic singalong to "Fall."

Sebastian Mikael, Iman Hannan, Young Paris, Art Comes First and many more were all in attendance.

Check out pictures from very special An OkayAfrica Party with Davido below, shot by Elliott Ashby and Kevain D. Delpesche.
