A historic night laid ahead for M Huncho, as awaiting him was a sold out O2 Academy Brixton – a huge milestone and achievement that embodies the type of rise we have seen from M Huncho in recent years. A queue around the block; which was front lined by fans who had been lining up for over 4 hours ready to see their favourite star, shows just how far the rap sensation has come in just under 5 years since bursting onto the scene in 2017.
Huncho’s performance was beyond belief; many artists, particularly within the rap genre are often succumb to criticism of delivery, stage presence and production. But for M Huncho, all 3 boxes were comfortably ticked off. Showcasing his rapping ability by performing many acapella’s throughout the night was a great surprise for many fans who may only been aware of his auto-tuned style.
A lorryload of A-List guests also kept fans hyped, as Giggs, Headie One, Unknown T, Nafe Smallz and Potter Payper all appeared throughout the show to keep energy levels high. Not that they were dropping in any way; it was clear with or without special guests that fans were leaving happy. They showed up and showed out to see their favourite rapper in M Huncho and were expecting a great show. M Huncho delivered to his fans.
