March has already more than its fair share of interesting alternative events happening around the country and while we’ve left you in the dark for a bit as to where to go and what to do if the mainstream really isn’t your thing, we’re taking our L and fixing up.
Adekunle Gold is returning to Afropolitan Vibes.
The last time Adekunle Gold performed at Afropolitan Vibes, he was on his way to becoming the humongous pan-african superstar he is now. With an album and several successful hits behind him Adekunle Gold will be returning to Afropolitan Vibes as a far more experienced artist. Cynthia Morgan and wild child Tomi Thomas are also on the set list, and if that isn’t enough incentive to check it out, this is Afropolitan Vibes’s 4th anniversary. Four years bruh! It’s going down this friday.
Bantu Sessions is to Abuja what Afropolitan Vibes is to Lagos. Started by the Iwar brothers and the collective of artists, musicians and creators they’ve brought into their fold, the Bantu Sessions have hosted talent like Lindsey Abudei and Kyrian Asher and continues to introduce the Abuja crowd to new, unconventional music. Abuja folks, don’t say we didn’t do anything for you. The March Bantu sessions are happening on the 25th of March.
Find out About Flora Nwapa in Onyeka Nwelue’s documentary.
Heard the documentary has already screened in a number of places and it is screening again (for free, you cheapskates) this weekend at the IREP Docufest this Sunday at Freedom Park in Lagos Island. It’s about time someone started looking retrospectively at the lives of our great female writers and creatives, and it is important that a young filmmaker is the one taking on the project. Check it out, so at least next time you’re not just nodding enthusiastically next time someone brings Nwapa up.
