OkayAfrica Presents 'Mzansi Heat & Naija Beats' with Yemi Alade, DJ Maphorisa & DJ Tunez at Lincoln Center Out of Doors

You don't want to miss this special night of Naija and Mzansi magic.

OkayAfrica is bringing Mzansi Heat and Naija Beats to Damrosch Park on Thursday, August 2, at 7:30 p.m.

Join us for our annual summer celebration and enjoy a night of fun, food and dance! Featuring sounds from Nigerian star Yemi Alade, whose sultry and powerful vocals have hailed her as Afrobeats royalty. Yemi, who released her latest album Black Magic late last year, is also the queen of videos, as her clip for hit single "Johnny" is the most watched Nigerian music video on Youtube.


Afrobeats' finest DJ Tunez will be bringing his banging mixes, designed to keep you moving all night with his massive tracks like "Iskaba." And South African producer, DJ Maphorisa, will get you dancing to his melange of Afropop and house music. You've heard Maphorisa's elite production on tracks like Drake's "One Dance" featuring Wizkid and the South African anthem "Ngud" by Kwesta.

RSVP here. You don't want to miss this special night of Naija & Mzansi magic!

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Seating is free, but on first-come, first-served basis. RSVP does not guarantee entry.
