The Labor Day Edition of EVERYDAY AFRIQUE Was the Perfect Way to Close Out Summer '16

Check out images from another epic Labor Day edition of EVERYDAY AFRIQUE.

Our friends at Everyday People and Electrafrique teamed up with Okayafrica for another holiday weekend edition of EVERYDAY AFRIQUE that perfectly capped off summer '16.


We descended onto Brooklyn's Output club on Labor Day where DJs Moma, Rich Knight, Cortega and Kashaka provided the sounds and you—beautiful people—brought the good vibes (and pushed back what would've been the remnants of Hurricane Hermine).

As the sun shined and set, Laolu Senbanjo adorned party goers with his Sacred Art of the Ori body paintings. Allan Kingdom and OWO each connected with the crowd as they touched the mic with amazing performances.

The photos below will tell you so much more of yesterday's festivities. Much thanks to Leon Williams, Miss Matay and Aaron Leaf for lending their lenses for the day!

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.
