Okayafrica & Electrafrique are touching down in Senegal for a two-day blowout on January 22 and 24. Everyday People’s own DJ Moma is making the trip all the way from NYC to spin alongside DJ Cortega for a weekender that’ll take things to Les Petites Pierres for a Friday night dance party and Sunday Everyday Afrique brunch. Joining Moma and Cortega on the 1s and 2s are Dakar's own DJ Psyle and Fat Baker. There will be a photo studio led by Siaka Soppo Traoré.

If you’ll be there, Instagram a photo of the party tagging @okayafrica. We’ll feature the best picture, with full credit to the photographer, across all of our social media pages. Be sure to keep up with our friends from @DakarLives who will be live-Instagramming the event.
