In Photos: This Is What 'An OkayAfrica Brunch' Looked Like

The OkayAfrica family came out in full effect on a summer Sunday in Brooklyn.

We had quite a weekend of dope Africans doing it for the culture—from Adekunle Gold shutting down both Lincoln Center Out of Doors and The Howard Theater in D.C. just a day apart, to the best musical talent from Africa and the diaspora performing at One Africa Music Fest in Coney Island.

OkayAfrica saw it fit to gather friends and family in our space to the home of OkayAfrica CEO Abiola Oke for great food, great drinks and great vibes at An OkayAfrica Brunch.

The images below just give a glimpse of the afternoon, where folks devoured delicious food thanks to African Chop House, drank special cocktails thanks to Moët Hennessy USA and vibed to sounds by DJ Buka.

Tastemakers, as well as movers and shakers in the industry including Jidenna, Jillionaire, Eddy Kenzo, Bose Ogulu, Young Paris, Mobolaji Dawodu descended on a summer Sunday in Brooklyn for what was quite simply a good time. Afro B even blessed the crowd with a surprise set which shut the party down.
