Afrobeats is, for those that are unfamiliar, a quickly growing genre of music that originates in Nigeria. The culmination of West African highlife music styles and American jazz and funk. The Afrobeat sound is an upbeat sound that makes you want to dance.
Following the concert, the after-party was hosted here in our Grand Ballroom. DJ Tunez played hits including ‘Turn Up’ ‘Gbese’ and ‘Iskaba’. The event was truly a music and visual experience with influences from around the world. There was a light show, confetti, awe-inspiring decorations and a lively crowd that danced the night away to the Afro-beats vibe.
