Promised to bring you a quick preview of what AFROfusion TV was up to at Zanzibar on the Waterfront in Washington, DC when Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars came into town on tour… You can check it out below! Thanks to super concert and artist promoter Raymond “Juju” Paris for facilitating it all! We arrived just as they were getting ready to do their soundcheck. Their tour manager Alex was gracious enough to allow our cameras extensive access. And Reuben and his bandmates were patient enough to sit down with us for a chit-chat – even though they were hungry as heck (they had been promised some good rice and cassava leaves by Juju.) We will have much more on the concert, including some of what we spoke about with Diamond Saj, who opened the show. AFROfusion host Khadia has already revealed more photos from the night in a previous post. Stay tuned, it’s all coming soon…

It was more than a few nervous nellies we came across outside Zanzibar Nightclub in Washington, DC on the eve of the Ms. Africa USA Pageant. The contestants had just been wined and dined at a posh hotel, and now they were letting their hair down and trying to kill their nerves. Most of the lovely ladies we spoke to had spent close to two years prepping for that big night! If you visit our Photo Gallery page, you can see some of the photos that we took on the night of the finale. Well, here’s a sneak preview of the show we’re putting together on African beauty and fashion, featuring some of the dynamic women from Ms. Africa USA 2010, and also the terrific designers whose clothes some of them wore.
Stay tuned for the full webisode from AFROfusion TV!
