Join us for a night of music in Washington, DC which will also feature DJ Poizon Ivy and Mannywellz.

OkayAfrica is excited to present Adekunle Gold and The 79th Element for the first time at DC's historic Howard Theatre on August 9th.

Adekunle Gold has served us with incredible tracks and visuals this year. Just after he and his wife, fellow Nigerian musician Simi, dropped the joint track "Promise", he followed that up with his first solo track of the year "Before You Wake Up," a romantic jam. He more recently dropped the dope music video for his latest single "Kelegbe Megbe" (translates to "know your level").

He will be joined on the night by DJ Poizon Ivy, the official DJ of the Dallas Mavericks, and rising Nigerian artist Mannywellz.
