    What a feast, what a great event. Africa met Covent Garden in Grand style, couldn't have picked a more prime location. The acts were brilliant, the fashion show finally came alive, the DJ slammed out the afrobeat tunes, Mr Ade the Mc really worked the crowd, and Nneka was just the icing on the cake. Well done to the organisers of this event. Mr Yinka Shonibare we salute you.. Nana you top it yet again...

    Had a great time with the group. Nneka topped off a quality programme of events with her 'conscious' and entertaining set :-)

    What a great line up! Look forward to this. I've heard some of Nneka tunes and she definately is the daugther of the soil (Niga). I just hope the weather holds out, does anyone know if all events are outdoor?
