Naija Worldwide, presented by OkayAfrica and Nike, hands down set the stage of summertime vibes in Brooklyn this summer.


Partygoers came through to The Well to celebrate Nike's triumphant Nigeria kits as Team Nigeria heads to Russia with style. Bright green and white lights illuminated the space as folks stopped by Laolu Senbanjo's dope mural capturing Nigerian pride for a photo-op to commemorate the day. After the screening of the friendly match between Nigeria and England, DJ Moniki warmed up the dance floor with fire baile funk tunes, as DJ Moma and DJ Tunez followed suit and did not dissapoint. Small chops filled bellies for folks to soon dance it off courtesy of Burna Boy (our surprise guest) shutting the stage down.

There's only so much we can put into words how needed this bash was for the culture—see it via the images in the slideshow below, with photos by A Kid Named Trav, Shako Oteka and Bukunmi Grace.
