This Friday, Afritribe and Sickerthanyouravg join forces to deliver their first #AFROxTRAP party in Washington, D.C. The event is unique in its promise of fusing elements of Hip-Hop (particularly the Trap sub-genres) along with elements of African culture (particularly, the Afrobeats genre of music). The event was created  with the hopes of celebrating the creative zeitgeist of African youth around the diaspora. The event feature performances by talented upamdcoming artists who have been featured in publications like: OkayAfrica, Saint Heron, Complex, DjBooth and more–including: Olawumi, Ikey,  Whyfi, Akeem Mimiko, and more. There will also be talented visual artists featured like: Chidinma Dureke, Seun Esan, and Brian Lasan. Also, a portion of the proceeds will be donated towards Afripads–an organization aimed at providing sanitary products and jobs for women in East Africa. The soundtrack for the event will be an energetic mix of Afrobeats, Hip-Hop, and whatever else is popping–promising to make this party one that you don’t want to miss.
