Uk rap veteran – Kano is planning to give back to his hometown in upcoming series, entitled ‘Newham Talks’ (September 4th.)

Equipped with 8-episodes, that will find Kano conversing with various high-profile, fellow Newham natives; about subjects like, Black Lives Matter protests, pressures of fame, black creative expression and much more. With the aim of raising money to help the community they grew up in.

Expect appearances from: Idris Elba Ghetts, D Double E, Footsie, Posty and more.

Elaborating on the new project, Kano shares: “Growing up in Newham made me the artist and the man that I am today. Newham is one of the most culturally rich but economically one of the poorest boroughs in London and as the effects of COVID 19 continue to hit the community hard, we must come together and do what we can to help.

“With other Newham-raised artists and cultural pioneers, I’ve started a conversation –  through ‘Newham Talks’, we aim to raise both awareness and funds to support this brilliant community, that has supported so many of us.”

All the money raised for Go Fund Me campaign will go to The Renewal Programme.
