Skepta first burst onto the UK rap and grime scene back in 1999 and is still one of the biggest artists in the genre. Alongside rapping, he is also a producer, songwriter and music video director.

He won the Mercury prize for ‘Best Album of the Year’ for his fourth studio album Konnichiwa in 2016. Other wins include Best British Male at the NME’s, Best International Act: UK at the BET Awards and Best Video and Best Song at the MOBO Awards.

The last time he performed in Dubai was back in 2016 at the annual pop-up Sole DXB festival which celebrates footwear, art and lifestyle with participation from some massive sportswear brands like Adidas, Nike, Puma and Reebok.

White is one of Dubai’s most legendary super clubs, with massive pyrotechnics and some seriously epic entertainment. Previous A-listers to have taken to the stage include Jason Derulo, Tinie Tempah and, most recently, cake-throwing DJ Steve Aoki performed there on October 4.
