Look back at "Africa at Night" 2015
Last year, DJ Dynamite spinned his best records while the visitors of the afterparty dropped in and enjoyed the African food. After the African dinner, Badi, a Belgian artist with Congolese roots, took place on the stage with his French hiphop with an African vibe. In between the live performances, DJ's Dynamite and Badguyz kept everyone dancing with their swinging music. With his catchy Afropop, headliner Amartey conquered the hearts of the audience. There was also plenty of entertainment in the central hall of Q-Factory, where visitors themselves were decorated with beautiful paintings, and where unique African art was shown. Check out the aftermovie of this great evening!
