For those of you who missed the NY Afro Fest’s September 24th debut, which is a lot of people did due to technical problems with connecting to WBAI Radio. Afrobeat band, Asiko led by Folorunso Kolade, AKA Bros Foly, opened the NY Afro Fest 2011 with a great performance at BUKA Restaurant in Brooklyn. Look for Asiko on AfrobeatRadio on WBAI soon.
