Black President’s Day 2017 – Recap

Props to the homie Kat for adding to her legacy of dropping the illest Fela Kuti celebrations to date, Black President’s Day.  If you’ve never been to a Lil SoSo event (Kat’s experience and event design agency) then you’re missing out on some of the most engaging and original events and creative salons, globally, and if you’ve never been to her Black President’s Day events then re-read what I just wrote.

The crowds and energy are amazing, and add to that world renown DJs, live musicians, the highly anticipated Queens Stroll, and video montages of Fela’s performances and speeches, and you’ve got yourself a memorable time.  It sounds simple, right, but you’ve also got to have the mix of everything on top of experience or it simply won’t work.

AMALGAMATION_flyer

Really looking forward to this event (produced by Risikat Okedeyi – who I’ve had the pleasure of working with on a range of her events), as I’m assisting with the creative marketing.  Its called nomads + tribes and is a counter-culture New Year’s Eve event, meaning you’ll be treated to WAY more than your typical New Year’s song-and-dance.  Check out the event details clicking here
