Now I’m not sure about you, but Sundays for me can just come and go, as the lazy bookend of the week, with the creeping realisation, Monday is just around the corner.
How do we make them more exciting? Sunday brunches of course.
Afrobeats Brunch makes this into an event, for anyone who loves this music. Afrobeats (from what I know) is a wave of Afropunk music combining West African musical styles originating in the 1970s, which is now also mixed by DJs with more commonly known Hip-hop, R&B, grime and funky house.
You may not be familiar with it, but if you’re any way partial to a good dance, with amazing food, chill vibes and a spot of day drinking, Afrobeats Brunch may just be the event to liven up your Sunday. It certainly did mine.
Here’s a breakdown of my highlights:
Music: I may be biased, but love love love! You can’t help but dance- sitting or standing!
I personally went with a really good friend of mine, who although is on the more classical and acoustic music end of the spectrum, still really enjoyed it and busted some moves. My personal favourite artists played included Maleek Berry, Mr.Eazi, WizKid and Davido.
Food: A 3-course delight of ‘food from the motherland’ as advertised. It did not disappoint- plantain, Jamaican chicken and jollof rice- yum!
Vibe: ‘Party Chill’. It catered for those who wanted to relax, enjoy the music, and chat away to those who wanted to carry on the party from Saturday night. Things were kept fun, by the MC and amazing dancers and the venue itself was beautifully decorated. So all in all a Sunday brunch with all the entertainment. Definitely recommended! Looking forward to going again!
