The biggest Afropolitan event of 2011 took place at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. The ‘Friday Late: Afropolitans’ show drew thousands of people to celebrate the fusion of cosmopolitan and African music, design, photography and more in what was one of the busiest Friday Late nights in the museum’s history.
On the night, Ms Afropolitan, Minna Salami presented a spirited panel discussion titled: ‘What is an Afropolitan?’ and a fashion show in the Raphael Gallery titled ‘The Rise of Afropolitan Fashion.’
