The Ford Amphitheater at Coney Island, in Brooklyn, New York was a convening spot for all things Afrobeats on August 19 when thousands of African fans came together, for the latest iteration of One Africa Music Fest, put on by Paul Okoye and his tireless team.

One Africa Music Fest was once again hosted by singer Banky W, and like usual, the show featured a heavy Nigerian lineup with artists like Davido, Tiwa Savage, P-Square, Flavour, Falz, Timaya, Tekno, 2Baba, Emma Nyra, and Aramide.
