Okayafrica is teaming up with newcomer Carrefour Créatif’s Mali-based production team for a new edition of Electrafrique at Bamako’s Espace Culturel Exodus on March 19, from 10pm till the last dancer leaves the floor.

Our fam DJ Cortega will be joining forces with Bamako’s very own DJ Momo Mac on the decks. Originally from Togo, Momo will be linking his favorite coupé décalé and afrobeat tunes to Cortega’s afro-house and kuduro heat, delivering ground-shaking beats to the night. On top of that, Djeli Madou’s tamani (talking drum) band will be bringing the soul and energy of traditional rhythms to the party.

3000 CFA gets you through the door (Hippodrome) with a free drink waiting on the other side.

If you’ll be there, Instagram a photo of the party tagging @okayafrica and be sure to keep up with our friends from @carrefourcreatif who'll be live Instagramming the event.

Featuring Tiwa Savage, Tekno, Larry Gaaga, Alpha P, Davido and many more.

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.
