The West African Azonto dance sensation will be hitting our clubs in Nairobi soon. The dance which originated from Ghana is now a big hit in West Africa and will be a monthly event at the Florida Night Club aka The Maddhouse. It will be unveiled this Friday and guest will get to enjoy music, food and dance fused together to give fans a West African experience right here in Nairobi.

The event will feature DJ Burn and the Florida Night Club DJs Jeff, Dennis and Sule. Future plans to generate continuity include bringing in artistes from West Africa to perform at 'The Azonto Experience' events and as well creating a platform for Kenyan artiste to have shows in West Africa.'West African music is the music to watch out for, people across the world are yearning for something new, and that void is being filled by African music.

Though Nigerians have gone a notch higher than the rest and released songs and videos with international artistes like Rick Ross, Akon and Kanye West. That is why we saw the need to bring this experience to Kenya while at the same time creating avenues to channel our own experience to the rest of Africa," said DJ Burn.
