Mayor of London Sadiq Khan: 'Grime is here to stay'

Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London, has spoken out in support of the UK's strong music scene and revealed that he's a big fan of grime. 

Chatting to the NME, Khan explained that having teenage daughters helps him to keep up with who's who on the scene at any given moment and he thinks there's a lot of talent coming out of the country right now:

“My girls are 15 and 17 and big grime fans. Skepta’s one of their heroes, Stormzy, Wiley, it’s great. We went to Drake last week and he had Section Boyz on stage – they’re a big grime act from London. Grime is here to stay.”
