The dedicated section of the South by South West festival, “Sounds from Africa and The Caribbean” hosted its 2017 set earlier this month and just as promised, Afropop was well represented on the Austin stage. Maleek Berry and Mr Eazi were able to make time from their international tours and Ayo Jay was more than happy to take the stage alongside his countrymen and colleagues.
While we wait for the official release of clips from the concert, here’s what our Nigerian artists were able to tell us about the festivals.
