Rubbing shoulders with Atumpan

As African Fashion Week London matures into its fifth year, so too does the calibre of designers, entertainers and exhibitors at the show this year.

The two-day event started on Friday 7 August at Kensington Olympia's exhibition hall.

The event brought together talented fashion designers, artisans skilled in jewellery-making, as well as those adept at creating stylish clothes and footwear.

But the vibrancy was not just confined to the clothes. Music from some of Africa's brightest stars was also showcased.
 
In the first of two instalments from the vibrant fashion event, MisBeee speaks to Ghanaian afrobeats singer Atumpan, whose energetic performance got young and old on their feet.

Atumpan, which means talking drum in Ghana's Akan languages, is a trained teacher.

He is best known for his controversial hit 'The Thing'.
