Video: Introducing Ikenna - What's Up Africa?!

Introducing Okayafrica's new weekly video blog of all that's popping (and kinda weird) on the continent. Whether it’s music, fashion, design, or general news, What's Up Africa has got it covered. The show is the brainchild of Nigerian/British frontman and comedian Ikenna Azuike, and supported by Radio Netherlands Worldwide.


Told through an African lens, WUA is the first video blog focussed on a lighthearted, fresh and critical look at goings-on in West, East and Southern Africa. You can check out new episodes every week right here on Okayafrica!

From Darey's new album Double Dare, "Banikidi" (which means "give me the beat.")
