Afrikan Boy – Free Event

Saturday 10th Jun 2017 - Sunday 11th Jun 2017 - 10.30pm

African Boy - Hit Em Up

Get moving to Afrikan Boy’s fusion of hip-hop, dance, Grime and Afrobeat. With sharp and multi-dimensional lyrics that encompass everything from UK slanguistics to Naija Pidgin, Afrikan Boy knows how to get his point across.
Expect the bass-heavy sounds of urban London and the rhythmic beats of Nigeria in this late night Meltdown party.

Citing everyone from Fela Kuti, Shina Peters and King Sunny Ade to 2Pac and Dizzee Rascal as influences, Afrikan Boy’s lyrics are as dynamic as his musical tastes.

Championed by the likes of Lauren Laverne from BBC 6Music, it was his humorous ode to a discount supermarket, the Grime-infused ‘One Day I Went to Lidl’, that caught the ear of underground fans.

He’s continued to captivate audiences since then and with a new album due this summer, Life In The West, it promises to be a party like no other.
