Poets and musicians got up on the stage and gave all the guests an amazing time.  Amongst people who performed at the event are; MusiqmindMahameek, Jay AlexandarDena LatoyaRomarinho, Floetic Lara , Empirical and Ola the Poet. For the grand finale YolanDa Brown (MOBO Award Saxophonist dubbed “voice” of mainstream Jazz in the UK) performed outstanding tributes to icons Bob Marley and Fela Anikulapo Kuti. YolanDa also did her version of the azonto!
