Venue :University of London Union
Date September 3 2011
The night was hosted by Simply Andy, who (seemingly effortlessly) engaged the crowd throughout the night with his jokes & dance moves.
Write way Collective opened the show. They were followed by Tru2DaName – he performed tracks off his next project with Deborah & was later joined by Jahaziel & E Tizz on the song ‘ We Rep’ – (his project is out later this month)
12 year old James Anderson (finalist on Britain’s Got Talent) sang ‘eyes on a sparrow’. Michaela Coel performed an acoustic set including ‘Bent & Broken’,’ it’s not over’. She gave away a few of her CD’s from her project- Fixing Barbie.
Guest artist Jai – who came from Los Angeles to be a part of the show-, gave an energetic performance with songs off her new album –Culture Shock.
Brewer then came on stage, he was followed by Lordside who got the crowd dancing before Guvna B started his set.
Guvna B performed a range of the tracks off Scrapbook. If you are one of the 25 000 + people who downloaded Scrapbook but could not make the live set – you missed a treat. It was evident that a lot of hard work and preparation had gone into the project. Earlier ,Guvna B had sent a tweet saying he had never worked this hard since he was 18. The band was in good form and brought a lot of energy to the stage.
Guvna B performed ‘Kofi’ with Michaela Coel, this was a very heartfelt performance.
Dion Dublin ( former footballer) made a guest appearance playing an instrument – we can only describe it as a ‘cube’ or an upgrade to the drum. He had earlier told listeners on Radio 5 Live that he was going to be playing at a gig.
After the show a fan, who had come all the way from Surrey said ‘ I really enjoyed it & there was a friendly atmosphere’ Highlight of the show? ‘People coming on stage to dance to ‘Walk On Water’ & Kingdom Skank’
If you are one of the 25 000 + people who downloaded Scrapbook but could not make the live set – you missed a treat.
