Lagosian Summer Mixtape: DJ Zimo x Lagos Chronicles

My Africa Is has teamed up with DJ Zimo for a summertime mixtape featuring Lagos musicians featured in the Lagos Chronicles.


We've been missing our weekly dose of "yoh that's cool" stories courtesy of The Lagos Chronicles. The three-part series introduced us to an insider's perspective on innovation in Lagos as well as some homegrown gems for the ears. The My Africa Is documentary crew recently teamed up with DJ Zimo for a summertime mixtape featuring the very tracks (and a few OKA favorites) that brought the series to bumping life. A little body rockin' Nigerian pop is good for the soul they say, so grab a download of The Lagos Chronicles soundtrack and catch up on the series below.
