New York, New York was the center of all things African music as the biggest and the brightest stars hit up the Barclays center in Brooklyn. The event featured performances from WizKid, Davido, Flavour, Timaya, Diamond Platnumz, Stoneboy and a host of others.
It was hosted by Banky W and the 18,000+ indoor arena was almost filled to capacity with Africans, and lovers of African music. It is very evident now that Afro-Pop and its spawning genres have started growing into the consciousness of American music lovers.
Just the face that it was streamed live on Tidal, tells you that we’ve gone past your regular corner shop performance levels. It was truly something to belold.
