BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival kicked off this summer and last month Laolu collaborated with Seun Kuti offstage before Seun joined his brother and headliner Femi Kuti on stage for a tribute to their father Fela Kuti. See some images of Femi and Seun performing and of the work Laolu created for Seun below!

Fear and Fancy and Everyday People NYC teamed up Saturday July 9th to put on a legendary beachside party featuring a performance by Jidenna, where a portion of the event's proceeds were donated to Black Lives Matter NYC! Laolu created a living tribute to the recent victims of police brutality, and to the movement that strives to validate and liberate the lives of black people in America, Black Lives Matter.
Laolu also painted a few special people during the party.
