One Africa Music Fest didn't disappoint in Houston

One Africa Music Fest didn't disappoint in Houston

The highly anticipated African musical concert of 2016 took place at the Toyota center in Houston, Texas featuring the biggest acts in the African music industry. The event was met with fanfare as the turn up was unprecedented. Fans enjoyed the performances by Flavour, D' Banj, Reekado Banks, Skales, J Martins, Seyi Shay, P-Square, Olamide, Zoro and more.

Fans enjoyed a mixture contemporary Afrobeats and traditional sounds as well as R&B. They leaped and raved as their favorite heartthrobs dished out hit after hit for their listening pleasure. There was no dull moment in the house.

Seyi Shay as the sole female headliner for the whole concert demonstrates the need for more female representation in the industry as only a handful is currently celebrated. One sole act was also noted at the sold out Brooklyn's Barclays Center venue by Tiwa Savage. By the singer's performance on that evening, she didn't disappoint performing some of her hits to include Murda, Irawo.

Highlight of the evening was SisQo. Serenading the crowd with greatest hits like Unleash the Dragon and Incomplete. He ensured crazed fans when he went into the fault for his all time smash hit Thong Song, they went wild for that one. Notable is the fact that the smooth crooner gets better with age. With his long hiatus from music, and watching him perform, it's like he never left, still able to burst his usual dance moves effortlessly. He recently dropped a new album titled The Last Dragon and is out on tour.

All in all, One Africa Music Fest was a success in both shows and have become an event a diverse fanbase will anticipate year after year. They are here to stay as OAMF chief organizer Mr. Peter Okoye received a proclamation by the city of Houston that would ensure they return every year.
SisQo solidifies his position in R&B with his triumphant return to the spotlight.

Vreezy Ville's latest track features Askia


Vreezy Ville Features Cameroon’s Rap Diva Askia in “Shakiti -Dab” Collabo.


US based Franco Records protégé Vreezy Ville teamed up with Cameroon’s female rap diva Askia on this hit collabo titled “Shakiti-Dab.” Talking to fans in Maryland, Vreezy Ville told fans he is very excited about this track as it brings out another aspect of his lyrical power.

This track is actually a blend of African and western culture via their various music trends in which Shakiti is a song and dance created by Nigerian artist Olamide and Dab is an American dance currently trending all over the world. The song also has a little bit of hip-hop, jazz and reggae not forgetting the afrobeat in it which makes it unique in style and content. This could easily be a club banger. It is written and recorded by Vreezy Ville and it features Cameroon female rapper Askia. Track is produced by Big Joe and mastered by Salatiel.

#AfropolitanHOU December 2015

December 18, 2015, the latest Afropolitan event took place at Q Lounge, Houston, Texas. Houstonians have slowly been warming up to this event since its inception, this time, it attracted a much younger crowd, more than likely heard the buzz from its soft launch.

The Afropolitan franchise is known for showcasing some noteworthy events like fashion shows, performances by some of our talents here in the diaspora, only time will tell what's in store for Houston.

A much more diverse crowd were noted at the December event, I got to interview quite a few. What brought them to this event? One common thread - social media and word of mouth. If you haven't heard yet, Afropolitan Houston will be taking place every 3rd Friday of the month, the first Houston event was November 2015. Afropolitan is known in cities like DC, Baltimore, New York and Maimi.

Enjoy the video below and I'll see you in one of the upcoming events.

Afropolitan Houston

November 20, 2015

Ever heard of the largest Afro-Caribbean mixer in the diaspora? Check out a new event in Houston.

#AfropolitanHou had a soft launch, attracting young African, African-American and Caribbean professionals to one place in Downtown Houston where they mixed and mingled over cocktails and unwound from their hectic schedules. Quite an impressive crowd turned up for this event.

Brought by Drumpulse Entertainment, Afropolitan mixers have been around a while in cities like New York, Miami, DC and Baltimore, serving up the hottest young professionals who want to network, some you won't find in your typical nightclubs. Folks I interviewed appreciate what this event had to offer, something different from the norm, these folks are tired of the same places like Belvedere and Zanzibar, they also appreciate the very diverse crowd from different parts of Africa and the Caribbean. There's nothing soft about this launch, I'd go ahead and presume this event is here to stay and would match the success of cities like New York and Miami.

Afropolitan Houston will take place every third Fridays of the month, be sure to check out their Facebook page and website to R.S.V.P.

Guinness Live it Up Tour

Last Saturday was Guinness Live it Up tour in Houston Texas at 1940 Air Terminal Hanger, Hobby airport. This free annual concert goes on in different states throughout the country for the 21+ crowd. Expectations would be appetite for Caribbean food and some good music (and probably some Guinness stout). This event was particularly timely as I can no longer remember the last time I was at a festival. As I made my way to this venue, I didn't know what to expect, but one thing was sure, I thought wait, this is happening...at the airport? They couldn't have chosen a scene more perfect, the backdrop definitely set the tone for the night ahead, what's better than being in the middle of a rave while watching planes take off? The place can be likened to an airline museum of sorts, I enjoyed exploring the exotic planes that laid around the hanger.
