ONE’s party blows the roof off of the US Africa summit


With 45 African heads of state and government congregating in Washington, D.C., for the US Africa leaders Summit, ONE found plenty of reasons to celebrate! 

ONE’s big bash at the Newseum on Monday brought together hundreds of guests including World Bank President Jim Yong Kim, singer Akon, House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D. Calif), House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Ed Royce (R. Calif), 9 of Africa’s most famous artists, and hundreds of development experts and influential guests.

It was a night of striking outfits and great music.

The party was a chance to celebrate what African nations have achieved. D’banj, Omawumi Megbele, Fally Ipupa, Judith Sephuma, Wax Dey, Victoria Kimani, A.Y., Femi Kuti and Buffalo Souljah were part of ONE’s Cocoa Na Chocolate video for our Do Agric campaign, and they played out the night.
