Change The World, Create Something!
If you follow us on Twitter, you know we've been hard at work in Austin, Texas for South by Southwest. Beside covering film, technology, fashion, and music at the 10-day festival, we produced two official SXSW music showcases and made history by bringing 10 of Africa's biggest names in music to one place!

The second night of the SXSW 2012 Spinlet All Africa Showcase featured Bez, M.I, Ice Prince, Jesse Jagz, 2Face Idibia and Naeto C from Nigeria, and Blitz the Ambassador from Ghana. Naija's DJ Neptune kept the crowd hype all night!
All these artists represent AFRIKA21, a concept we've created to celebrate Africaʼs next wave of creatives and highlight the renaissance taking place on the continent. We know a lot of our Society HAE family couldn't make it to Austin, so we're rolling out some footage of the performances to satisfy your curiosity. We have official round-up videos on the way, but hopefully some #fanfootage will hold you over until then! These videos will give you a feel of what it was like to be in the crowd that night -- the screaming, the jumping, loud speakers -- everything! Enjoy :)
