Many Rwandans living in the U.S turned up for the show. 

To show some love to their own, many Rwandan music lovers travelled from various states, like Michigan, Miami, Chicago, Ohio, Maine, North Carolina and Washington DC to be part of the event.

It was the second time DJ Africano was DJ-ing in the US. The first time was in April 2016.

Africano took to the DJs booth shortly after 10p.m, taking revelers on a musical journey that blended Rwandan and other musical sounds from around the world.
