No! He has defied the odds and used his talent in music to overcome the violence in his community. Dissimilar to the stereotypical rap and hip hop music glorifying crime and ‘repping ends’ [postcode wars], Alphonso reps lyrical content, flow and rhythm and giving black youth something positive to hold on to.
Alphonso’s latest adventure is Live Mic Unity Challenge which will take place at Hackney Homes community fun day events. On the agenda this summer across Hackney’s estates Hackney Homes will host five fun days between July and August for all residents to come along with the whole family. Xclusive Entertainment has been commissioned to organize the community talent show with winners awarded prizes and a fashion show display from local fashion designers. There will also be a special performance by Alphonso.
Hackney Homes community fun days are guarantee to be fun, fun and more fun!
