WHAT NOT TO MISS THIS JULY 2018


As we officially enter the second half of the year here are some things I suggest you do not miss out on this month! 


The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Wives| Arcola Theatre London| until 21stJuly 

I saw this recently the week it came out, and it was phenomenal, we thoroughly enjoyed the play edition of Nigerian author Lola Shoneyin’s book. The play is performed in a box setting with the audience surrounding the performance. I won’t give too much away, however I will most definitely recommend seeing the play that has a 7 week run here in London.

The World Cup Final| Worldwide| 15thJuly

As we are all aware of the World Cup, the season will soon be coming to an end. Use the date to get together with family and friends, host a BBQ or go to your favourite pub. Make the post of the day as it only comes around every 4 years. May the best team win!

AfroPunk Paris | France | 14th-15thJuly

Afropunk Paris is just around the corner and artists such as SZA, WizKid, Davido and Damien Marley will grace the stage for the weekend extravaganza. Afro punk is an arts and music festival that celebrates and unifies a number of cultures from the African diaspora through multiple mediums. The festival originally started in Brooklyn, New York. I’m yet to attend an Afropunk event, its on my bucket list though! The London Afropunk will take place next month.

Nelson Mandela: The Centenary Exhibition | Southbank London | 17thJuly to 19th August

The exhibition explores the life and career of Mandela; the freedom fighter for equality and justice throughout South Africa, who was more than influential on the end of the nations apartheid. The exhibition is presented by Apartheid Museum and Anti-Apartheid Movement Archives. There will be an official Nelson Mandela exhibition opening early next year to mark his 100thbirthday and 5 years since his passing.
