We’ve been Okayplayers since the beginning. The Roots-led site is one of the Web’s first music blogs before blogging even became popular. Now the Okayplayer family launches OkayAfrica, a new cultural guide giving you the same notes as Okayplayer but with an Africa-centered, Diasporic vibe. The site is super dope! It features music, videos, album reviews, tour info and news about Black artists throughout the Motherland and the entire globe. The slate of OkayAfrica artists is not too shabby. Headlining the new online musical compass is Afrikan boy, K’naan, Nneka, Muthoni the Drummer Queen, Blitz the Ambassador, and more! One of the coolest things about the site is that it has specifies news and events via country. Visitors can have the global deets on their favorite vocalists and emcees, as well as those to be discovered from Soweto to Mali.

Lovers of the fresh Okayplayers tees? We still have ours from undergrad. Stay tuned to the OkayAfrica store for womens and mens tees and hoodies.
