August In Africa 2015, Convent Garden. Asa, Fuse ODG


Saturday, 2nd August 2015, Africa descended on London. Covent Garden played host to an amazing day of African prints, foods, fashion accessories and in particular MUSIC An all-day concert including Fuse ODG and our very own Asa, both of whom threw down!

Now…on to the music! There was so much FUN! Here’s some random African band – I never did catch their name, but they were wicked!


Fuse ODG came to sing all the hits we know – Million Pound Girl, Azonto, Dangerous Love, Antenna etc:

But he also to spread the message about a positive Africa – an Africa that isn’t about pot bellied babies and starvation, an Africa that does not need Bob Geldof and his shenanigans; always talking about snow in Africa during Christmas. Oshisko PLC. He explained the meaning of his slogan: This Is New Africa, and I really loved Fuse’s message – inspirational, hopeful, uplifting. Yum.

Lemme tell you about my gurl Asa. That girl can sing a song, ejooo! The atmosphere was electric, the crowd remained at their maximum turn-up even though she came on at 8pm as the headline act and most of them had been there all day.

We sang along to every word of every song, and this lady did an hour straight without stopping for air. She killed it, biko:
