Mixmag and BUDX went to Lagos from June 26-28 to offer three full days and nights of music panels, workshops and parties, featuring both local and global artists.
From the influence of African music on Caribbean music, to the impact of social media on local artists and dancers, to the rise of Nigerian fashion worldwide, we explored the various aspects of Nigerian culture through insightful panels and discussions.
Below are a few of the key individuals that helped to shape the BUDX Lagos experience. Check out our panel discussions with DJ Obi, Orange Culture, Tokyo James, and many more below:
DJ Obi is not only one of the most prominent house DJs in Nigeria, he’s also a world record holder for playing the longest DJ set in history. After maintaining the vibe behind the decks for a mind-boggling 240 hours, he skyrocketed to international fame. Check out our panel discussion with this legend in the video above.
