Music-Net’s spring tour features rising star Afrikan Boy, the London based MC who fuses the bass heavy urban sounds of London with the rhythmic beats of Nigeria to carve out his own very special niche. Citing influences as varied as Fela Kuti, King Sunny Ade and Dizzy Rascal – and through collaborations with M.I.A, DJ Shadow and Silver Bullit – Afrikan Boy has steadily built an international fanbase through a combination of big beats, wit, humour and an awesome wardrobe.
