This showcase of the sounds of West Africa is co-headlined by Patoranking and Flavour. Patoranking, a Nigerian singer raised under the influence of reggae, dancehall, and Afrobeat, broke out in 2014 with a Tiwa Savage remix of his song “Girlie O.” Nigerian highlife singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Flavour, best known for his hit “Nwa Baby (Ashawo Remix)” will also showcase his artistry. They’re supported by Juls, a British-Ghanaian artist, DJ, and producer who’s featured on hits by Stonebwoy (“Rudebwoy Love”) and Mr Eazi (“Skin Tight”). Adding the local flavor is Superhero DJ Jon Quick, whose AfroFlava Radio has for years counted down the top Afrobeat hits for the New York City market. He’s joined by co-hosts and media personalities Lisa Yaro & Osei The Dark Secret.
