Citing everyone from Fela Kuti, Shina Peters and King Sunny Ade to 2Pac and Dizzee Rascal as influences, Afrikan Boy’s lyrics are as dynamic as his musical tastes.
Championed by the likes of Lauren Laverne from BBC 6 Music, it was his humorous ode to a discount supermarket, the Grime-infused ‘One Day I Went to Lidl’, that caught the ear of underground fans.
He’s continued to captivate audiences since then and with a new album due this summer, Life In The West, it promises to be a party like no other.
DJ sets by Emerald, host of Rinse FM’s Breakfast show, bookend the night with an eclectic mix of good vibes.
