It's been a full year of #OKAYAFRICADC and the vibes have been the truth!

Since its inception, there’s been a deep demand to keep it going– and so, in the name of promoting the latest music and culture coming from the diaspora, #OKAYAFRICADC continues its wave of mind-wide, foot friendly parties in the nation’s capital. On Wednesday, December 18th, DJs Underdog and Jahsonic will grace the decks at Tropicalia– no pretentiousness, no commercial radio nonsense, and no drama.
