NYC: DJ/Rupture & Dutty Artz' Afro-Spectacle
What: In their own words,
DJ/Rupture and Lamin Fofana will host a special 2-hour live radio show with Chief Boima, Old Money, and our favorite African video shopowner.
Following the live WFMU broadcast — built primarily from African music videos purchased in the cornerstores of NYC — we will screen God’s Own Country by director Femi Agbayewa. GOC presents the story of a young Nigerian lawyer who immigrates to NYC to discover that life in America is not like he hoped. As Boima explains, “It’s firmly in the Nollywood tradition. The story line is a New York story, and I think it’s the perfect context for the non-Nollywood initiated to get introduced to the industry. . . it is also referencing the tradition of the American hood gangster flicks like Belly. Almost an amalgamation of the two.”
Palm wine and kola nuts are included with the $5 admission. Space is limited, so come early! (DuttyArtz)
