On August 2012, dozens of Afikpo people, along with their friends, families and well wishers  congregated at the Westin Houston Memorial City Hotel in Houston, Texas, USA to celebrate the New Yam Festival (Iriji) in style.

In attendance were Afikpo sons and daughters resident in the United States. They were joined by Afikpo people from Nigeria and other countries. The event featured a traditional kola nut breaking ceremony, an annual meeting of Afikpo people scheduled to coincide with the occasion, speeches by attendees, a dance by Afikpo wives and daughters and more.

Afikpo Organization USA coordinates the annual New Yam Festival the United States, in addition to other public service projects to benefit Afikpo people at home and abroad.
