Last month I got round to the- one- of- a- kind @AfrobeatsAndBrunch with excitement. I was really impressed with the concept and wanted to see if it would live up to the hype- and most importantly…the food! It was held at FEST, Camden- starting at 1pm and finishing nicely at 6. I came through reppin with my Kente strips straight outta Bonwire, Kumasi. As you can see from the profile image- the vibes was so liiiit and the tunes were on point, I was up on stage dancing (but then again if you know me I’m sure it’s no surprise innit?) #IAmTheParty
Here’s an example of what I’m talking ’bout:
As I type this, the next major brunch already selling out will be 15th July where Sam Savage will be on the decks. On Monday prices will go up due to demand so make sure you GET YOUR TICKETS and join me there! #TellAFriendToBringAFriend
If you haven’t heard about @AfrobeatsAndBrunch before, it’s fairly new and a different way to discover African food and music in a fun environment. You can ‘club it’ like it’s a Friday night and still have time to rest, massage your sore muscles from dancing, and get ready for #MondayMoanday at work! Although it’ll be your friends moaning because they didn’t go. #JustSaying
Despite being several months old AfrobeatsandBrunch have already had 3 sold out events and 15th July is set to be their 4th. The event is run by a young team of Afrobeats fans , hosts and dancers as well as the MC- Jess is the #Bossbabe on site and she’s hoping one day they will have guests such as Mr Eazi, Olamide, Naira Marley and…Wiz Kid.
For any of you new to Afrobeats the team recommend acts Kojo Funds and also the epic song ‘Issa Goal’ (youtube them!) while you’re at it I recommend you check out Ms Vee, Ebony, Shatawale and Bisa K’dei.
Special guest DJ @JulsBaby rocked the house with more afrobeats and sprinkled in some newskool artists as well as some dancehall. The crowd was nice- good vibes and a diverse range of ages although it was mostly females. I was impressed by the wide representation of Africa- from Mali, South Africa, Nigeria and Ghana as well as my Chinese/Philippines crew (there are alot of Chinese people in Africa Btw- for better and worse!). African music and it’s good-life feels are really going mainstream #ForTheCulture
Here’s a good playlist I recommend to get a good feel of Afrobeats and get your moves on point bruh:
Oh and the food! Jheeeze the menu sounded delicious and lived up to it. Special shout out to #TheFlygerians from @TheGardenOfEdun who catered at the event. The plantain was nice and ripe, the beef was seasoned properly, not watered down for the mainstream and the special sauce on the Jollof and chicken was levels. The dessert was also a highlight as it was so authentic and clever- I just wished the portion was bigger!
It was great to be a special guest last month and I knew straight away I would be back soon. So if you’ve been planning to come…come! Look out for me on 15th- the team have kindly extended a discount to my friends and family (OMG mum I’ve made it!!). For a 10% off your ticket use the code MISSBROWN10. For the love of gwara gwara and ( Ghanaian) jollof rice, see you soon chale!! #WakandaForever
