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.

Kayode Kasum’s Quarantine Watchlist

From 'Wives on Strike' to 'Goodwill Hunting' here's what the Nigerian filmmaker is watching while stuck at home in Lagos.

Kayode Kasum, like most filmmakers, has been stagnated by the coronavirus pandemic. The director behind the blockbuster Sugar Rush and the critically acclaimed Oga Bolaji was working on the post-production of his upcoming movies, The Fate of Alakada: Party Planner and Kambili—a collaboration between FilmOne Entertainment and Chinese Huahua Media— when the Nigerian government announced the lockdown order.

While post-production on Alakada has concluded, the stay-at-home orders have delayed work on Kambili. "Since the team cannot meet at a single point, we are moving hard drives left and right," he says to me over the phone from his home in Lagos. "It is a challenge, but the beautiful thing about a challenge is, when you make it work, it is fulfilling."

Still from 'Kambili'

Kasum has turned to books and films for an escape from the unpleasant realities of the pandemic. "I have been reading Elnathan's books: Born on a Tuesday and Becoming Nigeria," he tells me. "I have also been reading film directing books, Directing Actors by Judith Weston." However, Kasum longs for the movies. "I miss going to the cinemas; I miss that experience," he says. "There are times during this pandemic that I'm like 'na wa o, I wish I can go to the cinema.'"

Below are five films he recommends you watch during this pandemic.
