Other artists including Clean Bandit, Emeli Sande, MIA and Jamelia have also voiced their support for Labour in this election. Stormzy, Kano, Akala and Professor Green have signed an open letter in support of the party.
The letter states Labour, “offer an urgent alternative to the destructive policies of the Conservatives…ending austerity will, for the first time in many of our lifetimes, use the taxes we all already pay into, to reinvest in the housing, youth clubs, community groups and cultural centres being destroyed by the current government.”
“Jeremy Corbyn is the first man in a position of power who is committed to giving power back to the people and helping those who need a helping hand from the government the most”, Stormzy also posted on social media.
Other musicians like SlowThai, Lily Allen, Massive Attack, Kate Tempest and Wiley have also declared their support.
In addition the 24-year old singer and model Dua Lipa has revealed the details of her upcoming album ‘Future Nostalgia’ and her 2020 tour dates.
