Last night, Boy Better Know Africa was over in Lagos, Nigeria for their highly anticipated homecoming event; the three-day mini festival featured live shows, art, sports and music, featuring recognised global artists with one thing in common, their Nigerian heritage.
The festival saw a live music showcase, pop up shops, Nike Tee customisation and even a football tournament. The Homecoming line up featured recognized musicians such as Wizkid, Davido, J Hus, Tiwa Savage, Skepta, as well as many more local artists. The pop-up shop consisted of the following brands; MAINS, Wafflesncream, Orange Culture, Off White, TTYA, and Patta among others. Over the past two years, Skepta’s status has grown into one of the biggest cultural influences regarding underground (currently mainstream) music and fashion globally. Skepta has always drawn inspiration and shown pride in his African roots having previously funded construction on a playground for children in his local village. All proceeds from the Homecoming Event was donated to charity.
