Skepta (@Skepta) Gig Raises £30K For Homeless Charity Shelter
Boy Better Know‘s frontman, Skepta packed out the Islington Assembly Hall, in north London last night (Tuesday, April 4), with his special show in partnership with housing and homelessness charity Shelter.
The night kicked off with DJ Maximum providing the sounds with a pre-set, infront of big screen encouraging people to donate by text, while displaying key facts about the homeless and housing in the UK.
The vibe on the night was relaxed with Skepta having fun with the crowd as he ran through his biggest hits including his most recent single ,‘No Security’, bringing out fellow BBK member Shorty on stage.
Highlight of the night was probably Skepta surprising the audience by bringing out US rap star A$AP Rocky to perform their collaboration, ‘Put That On My Set’ which raised the energy levels in side the venue.
Concluding the night Skepta took to social media to thank everyone who attended the event in the following statement:
“Together we raised over 30k today for the @ShelterCharity love to everybody that bought a ticket, bought merch, donated or contributed in any way. Love 🌹”
This is a great achievement, and will surely go some way in helping Shelter in providing its important service for those dealing with housing and homelessness issues.
Skepta We salute You!
