“No Sexism, No Racism, No Ableism, No Ageism, No Homophobia, No Fatphobia, No Transphobia, and No Hatefulness.” That’s Afro Punk and that’s why we love it, why the world love the festival.

In a world where we live by rules and lots of shaming, which is affecting lots of ego and self esteem and also making the world boring, many people are sick of that reality of abuse and living by what some certain people feel is the definition of life or beauty. At Afro Punk all that is not allowed as you are welcome the way you are, with your beliefs and personality.

In their 15 years of existence, Afropunk has managed to curate an environment that can only be described as an ethereal, momentary hideaway for black people from all corners and crevices of the diaspora and this year was no different.

This year we are in love with The Sacred Art of Ori by Laolu, as his crew were all adorn in his art.

A grander kaleidoscope of community, fashion, political statements, and strength of spirit. The scene was an overwhelmingly beautiful sea of brown and black faces using their style as a means of expression, protest, and activism.
