Video: Revisit the Magic from OkayAfrica's 'Mzansi Heat & Naija Beats' at Lincoln Center Out of Doors

Our video recaps what went down featuring Yemi Alade, DJ Tunez and DJ Maphorisa.

OkayAfrica's 'Mzansi Heat and Naija Beats' was the ultimate African dance party to land at Lincoln Center Out of Doors.

In our third year of partnering with the free concert series, Damrosch Park was jam packed with over 5,000 people in anticipation to see Nigerian star Yemi Alade, South Africa's DJ Maphorisa and Afrobeats' DJ Tunez in action—and it was nothing short of amazing.

In this recap video, you'll get a glimpse of the night full of African magic along with hearing from the three stars themselves about the priceless moment, the hard work it took to prepare for the night and more.

Watch below.
