This Is What Our 'OkayAfrica Link Up: Nairobi' Party Looked Like

In photos: Blinky Bill and Coco Em had The Alchemist fully-packed for OkayAfrica's party in Nairobi.

This party was one for the ages.

It was a full house at The Alchemist Bar last Thursday night, on December 13, when we touched down to throw the first ever OkayAfrica activation in Nairobi, Kenya.

Nairobi's hardest hustling DJ Coco Em kick-started the night with some highly-infectious afro-house tracks.

Blinky Bill then brought the house down with a mini acoustic and drum machine live set, followed by a remarkable afrobeats-electronic DJ set to take us into the night.

After a lot of chanting and begging from the audience, he could not resist giving them a lively rendition of "Atenshan", from his new album, Everybody's Just Winging It and Other Fly Tales.

The OkayAfrica Link Up party was hosted by our Music Editor Kam Tambini and Kenyan-based music critic, curator and contributor, Camille Storm.

Check out how it all went down below. All pictures by Craig Mumo Kitili (CJ Pixels).
