Okayafrica is proud to present the Peppa Soup at the Sweet Spot Festival in NYC this weekend!

Join Okayafrica and the Sweet Spot Festival on July 20th for an electric celebration of African music and culture.

The Sweet Spot marketplace will feature unique African food, jewelry, vintage vendors. Jetblue will once again raffle off a free flight to anywhere they jet. Okayafrica is coming with special goodies. And The Studio Museum of Harlem will host a fun and engaging art workshop for all. The fun continues at the after-party hosted by the amazing team from The Shrine at their new restaurant Silvana. Delicious food and live music. What more can you ask for! In the meantime, jam to DJ Tafari's Pure Wata Afrobeat mix, who'll be turning up Harlem on July 20th. See you there!
