I cannot get across how amazing Afla and the band were when playing at my party! Their energy was incredible and we were dancing non stop. They are able to create a great connection with the audience which reflects in the special atmosphere that is created. I had so many messages from guests saying they couldn't believe how good the band were. Blew all my expectations and I wouldn't hesitate for a second in re booking - they made the party!

Armed with three congas and a djembé, Sackey makes his mastery of his art crystal clear, with mind-boggling solos and strong vocal lines sung in counterpoint with his heavily syncopated drum parts. A fantastic performance and dining experience rolled into one, I can’t wait to return to Pizza Express for further performances, and will definitely be attending Afla Sackey’s next London gig!
