This Is What Our Electrafrique NYC Party Looked Like

Photos from OkayAfrica Electrafrique's return to New York City with DJ Moma, DJ Cortega and Stanley Enow.

Over the weekend, we welcomed OkayAfrica Electrafrique back to its New York City home.


Everyday People‘s DJ Moma and Electrafrique’s own DJ Cortega, both of whom recently played an epic Electrafrique Dakar party, blew the roof off Louie & Chan with selections of the hottest African beats and sounds.

The club was at capacity all night with a line down the block as our special guest, Cameroonian star rapper Stanley Enow, performed a short & banging set for the audience inside.

Check out pictures from the night below. All photos taken by Kenny Rodriguez.
