Khona DJ’s (NGA/FIN): Afrobeats Special


The hottest thing in the global club scene at the moment is afrobeats, where urban club sounds of Nigerian, Ghanaian, South African, Tanzanian and Kenyan dance hall, house and hip hop have been melted together. Now it’s time for Helsinki to follow the trend right after London and Berlin.

Khona Afrobeats Fest is a club collaboration between the Boom Shakalaka deejays and DJ X-Ray, the man behind popular Afrobeat Cult club organized at Nosturi. On Friday night at the Funky Elephant Festival, they will let you know what is it all about while you will be sweaty bouncing to their hottest sounds!

DJ X-Ray is originally from Lagos, Nigeria with a background as a radio and tv journalist. In Finland, he’s best known for his deejaying and promoting events such as Club Swagga ja The Afrobeat Cult in Helsinki for several years.

DJ-Hermanni-3DJ Hermanni (aka Svengali) is a well-reputed deejay from Helsinki. He has made his mark with his clubs Kuningassoundi, Ghetto Blaster, Boom Shakalaka and Afro Sunday. He’s actively touring Finland all the time and plays abroad as well. It’s not long ago since last time when he served 1500 people with his afrobeats selections at the Full Moon beach party in Zanzibar, Tanzania.
