about

AFAHYE is a pre-album, a public introduction of OSHUN.

"Afahye" is a Fante term for a particular yam festival, a celebration of harvest, youth, and rebirth. It is also a part of Ayare-Sa Afahye, which is a cleansing festival where rites of passage initiates are presented to the community as warriors in training.

AFAHYE is a commencement. OSHUN is presenting themselves as warriors to their community as they begin their journey of rebirth, redefinition, and revolution.


All donations are welcomed. Proceeds will help support OSHUN's independent business model. WE GIVE THANKHS!!
