Photos: Here's What 'An OkayAfrica Party' at Lot 45 Looked Like

You won't want to miss the next one.

The first edition of An OkayAfrica Party at Lot 45 was one for the books.

All roads led to the Bushwick venue for a party that hit nearly all corners of the continent thanks to sounds by EPM, Mike Abrantie, DJ AQ and DJ YB. Sampa the Great came through after shutting it down at BRIC's Celebrate Brooklyn and rocked the mic as our host for the evening.

There's not much else to note other than don't miss the next one. The photos taken by Elliott Ashby below encapsulate the vibes.

Take a look.
