Tem­pah joins Wizkid on stage at Wire­less

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Tinie Tem­pah made a sur­prise ap­pear­ance at Wire­less Fes­ti­val on Sun­day. The 28-year-old rap­per sent the young crowd into a frenzy when he jumped on stage dur­ing Wizkid’s set in the main arena to per­form their hit sin­gle ‘Ma­macita’ to­gether. But he didn’t just do one song and leave, as the song­writer whose real name is Pa­trick Chuk­wue­meka Okogwu - stuck around to per­form his 2010 sin­gle ‘Pass Out’ as well. Wizkid kicked off his set with his new song ‘Come Closer’, which fea­tures Drake, be­fore he went into ‘Naughty Ride’ and told rev­el­ers that he “I loves Lon­don.” Ear­lier on in the day, North Lon­don artist Abra Cadabra asked fes­ti­val go­ers to take part in a minute’s si­lence, be­fore he kicked off his per­for­mance, as a trib­ute to the vic­tims of the Gren­fell Tower fire, which saw an es­ti­mated 150 peo­ple lose their lives when an in­ferno ripped through the apart­ment block in West Lon­don, last month. The com­mem­o­ra­tive moment was also in honor of Bradley Low­ery a six-year-old boy who died last week fol­low­ing a tough bat­tle with neu­rob­las­toma - a rare type of can­cer. A no­tice pub­lished on site read: “Abra Cadabra asks fans to join him at the Pepsi Max Stage and across the whole site to ob­serve a minute si­lence at 1:45pm for the vic­tims of those af­fected by the Gren­fell Tower tragedy.” He told fans as they gath­ered at the stage for his per­for­mance: “You know what hap­pened in West Lon­don in the fire, it’s a sad thing - God bless ev­ery­one that passed away. The com­mu­nity came to­gether, stick to­gether and now they will pull to­gether.” He then asked the crowd to put their hands to­gether and ap­plaud the vic­tims.
