Bringing the “Afrisonore” Experience to Life: Photos from the DMV LaunchPosted on Friday, July 30th, 2010 at 10:54 PM
So many of the events featured on BN take place in Lagos and sometimes Abuja, we thought it would be nice to check out what our people on ‘the other side’ were up to!
The latest addition to the African music entertainment landscape – Afrisonore launched its platform in dynamic fashion at Washington, DC’s exquisite K Street Lounge, and BellaNaija.com was on board to provide coverage for this highly anticipated launch.
Afrisonore.com is a multi functional website, profiling African music and connecting audiences worldwide. The site represents the vision of Harvard Graduate Ike Anyaoku, an entrepreneur who believes in the cultural potency of African music. Ike saw the need for a tool which can be utilized for not only promotional means by African artists, but also as a public forum and entertainment outlet for consumers.
Its launch party featured a red carpet with numerous chic and cosmopolitan Africans and African music enthusiasts alike, including Ghanaian R&B recording artist, Koby Maxwell, and Nollywood Director and Producer, Chima.
One of the coolest features of the night for us was the display of their mobile application, which they claim will take African music to new heights allowing their listener to discover new music, listen to their favorite artist and create playlists all at the click of the fingertips.
The launch looked fab and as always we are very proud and elated when we spot young African entrepreneurs developing new ventures. Afrisonore came on the scene with a bang. There are no doubts that this is one company gaining a lot of traction in the music entertainment world. We are looking forward to hearing more about this company in the very near future.
