#OKAYAFRICADC 'FELA For President!' This Wednesday!

This Wednesday at Tropicalia Okayafrica DC brings you the 'Fela For President' Tribute with DJ Underdog and DJ Baronhawk.


DC fam! This Wednesday the Felabration heads to Tropicalia! Resident spinner DJ Underdog will be joined by DJ Baronhawk (Urban Artistry) in paying respects to our afrobeat father, who would have been turning 75 today. Anything is fair game, but expect more afrobeat than usual since this is a tribute to the one and only Fela Anikulapo Kuti, architect of the dancefloor arts. Best bring a towel. Come early and leave late!
