Yemi Alade
DJ Maphorisa
DJ Tunez

OkayAfrica—the online hub of the African New Wave—brings two Afropop superstars and a legendary Brooklyn DJ to Damrosch Park for this high-octane party. Drawing on everything from Ghanaian highlife, Ivorian coupé-décalé, and American hip-hop, the Nigerian “Queen of Afrobeats” Yemi Alade (Fader) lights up the stage with power vocals and irrepressible charisma. DJ Maphorisa, the multiplatinum South African producer known for his banging blend of house and Afropop, and Flatbush’s own DJ Tunez—official DJ to Nigerian megastar Wizkid—will keep you feeling great all night long.
