Look back at "Africa at Night" 2016 and 2015
In 2016 the Ghanaian reggae singer/songwriter Black Prophet was the headliner of the afterparty! His music is a mixture of African traditional percussion blended with elements of Jamaican reggae and a hint of rock. Black Prophet has played in over 30 countries; therefore, we were very delighted that he performed at "Africa at Night"! DJ's Marcio Gomes and AJ Da Costa spinned their best records at "Africa at Night". It was beyond a doubt, that they got everyone dancing! The talented Kenyan artist Emma Kavuma, gave a live art performance on stage. Some even went home with his work of art! Beside this, DERRIF DANCECREW provided a dance act. The evening was hosted by the Ethiopian stand-up comedian Mo Hersi.
In 2015, DJ Dynamite spinned his best records while the visitors of the afterparty dropped in and enjoyed the African food. After the African dinner, Badi, a Belgian artist with Congolese roots, took place on the stage with his French hiphop with an African vibe. In between the live performances, DJ's Dynamite and Badguyz kept everyone dancing with their swinging music. With his catchy Afropop, headliner Amartey conquered the hearts of the audience. There was also plenty of entertainment in the central hall of Q-Factory, where visitors themselves were decorated with beautiful paintings, and where unique African art was shownof this great evening!
