Entering the main area of Button Factory where the party took place, you could feel something special was about to go down. Candle lit tables, the chatter of creatives and the mood was set for an amazing spectacle. From his gritty, raw performances, picturesque screenings of music videos (both new and old) and honest, inspiring interview Jafaris’ immense talent was on full show.
A few familiar faces were present during the night such as; OYINZA of issue 3, King David, Txmmy Rose and Evans Junior of issue 1 and the Rex boys from Issue 6. A lot of new faces too such as the lads behind district magazine.
The night highlighted the meticulous planning that has gone into release of “STRIDE” Huge congratulations to Jafaris and his team at Diffusion Label for an amazing, groundbreaking night and best of luck with the upcoming tour!
