Afropunk in Africa
Updated: Apr 5, 2020
When you can finally enjoy that music festival with your people. Afropunk was a vibe.
You know that moment you're at Jambyla or another musical festival, the only black face among a sea of others? "My bitch is bad and bougee, cookin up dope with the oozie, My nigg...... (cringe). What a relief to not even worry about it.
Afropunk is a 2 day festival, with music, food, and fun. Rooted in punk DIY culture, speaking of DIY, get into my flower crown. I felt so fabulous lol.
Day 4: Afropunk
I'm introduced to some amazing artist the "JazziDeciples" and "Busiswa"
I really appreciated how the locals hyped their artist. The call and answers were so infectious.
Day 5: MASEGO MASEGO HAPPY NEW YEAR. It was really cool bringing in the new year in South Africa.
One of the best shows I've seen, but what else would you expect? Masego is truly an amazing artist. I think most people fall in love after their first listen.
I think I'll pass on all other festivals unless its AFROPUNK!
