There ain’t no party like a Lagos party.


Or so they say. This weekend, Dazed flew out to Lagos, Nigeria for the third annual MTV Africa Music.

Awards and spent a few days and some late nights meeting rap, R&B and kuduro superstars from across Africa: names like Banky W, Fally Ipupa, Daddy Owen, Cabo Snoop and Radio & Weasel, from Angola to Uganda, Democratic Republic of Congo and beyond, all huge stars in their own countries, selling truckloads of records despite rampant piracy and a rickety music industry. These guys are kind of the Jay Zs and Snoops of Africa, basically.

Dearest friends and music lovers, we had just the best night of music for the European Fundraiser ... the music was mighty, the sounds pouring out into the Sandringham streets, and the vibe unbelievable. Thanks to everyone, everyone who attended, bought a ticket for the raffle, made feisty bids in the auction and supported us. EUROPE HERE WE COME!!!
