EVENT REVIEW: Big Man Zest Single Launch Party In Conjunction With 'Save The ACLT'

Earlier this week, a collective of artists and fans alike gathered together to celebrate the release of Big Man Zest’s single, 'Who I Am', and to raise funds for the African Caribbean Leukaemia Trust.

Held in London venue Avalon, one and all walked into an easy, welcoming environment. Kayleigh Loudmouth hosted the event alongside MTV Base’s infamous Kat. The crowd were kept entertained by some of London’s finest DJ’s, a few UK acts as well as Zest himself.

The first act was Funky House singer Superstar Selah, followed by East London female duo, Addictive. Nominated for two Mixtape Awards, the girls definitely wowed the crowd. Cuppcake performed her cover of Floetry’s 'Say Yes' and her new Dubstep tune 'Robot'. Veteran Terri Walker also graced the stage with a couple of new songs with Beatnik, and Natalie May came to strut her stuff by singing and promoting her new track 'Closer'.

Fr3e, Pepstar and Lioness all also took to the stage and showed the audience their stuff, receiving great feedback.

Throughout all the entertainment, an encouraging speech was given on behalf of the African Caribbean Leukaemia Trust by Orin Lewis. He spoke about the desperate need to raise funds by the end of March this year to keep the charity alive which in return can help to keep others alive also. This was followed with an auction where many impressive gifts were donated by well-known companies such as Trapstar and Avit.

Big Man Zest was the final act of the night and really showed us what he was made of, giving a very humble performance that had everyone smiling from ear to ear. Not forgetting the ACLT, Zest left the stage sharing with everyone his message of raising awareness and support.

Overall, an eventful night, with a very good turnout. Many known members of the industry stopped by to show support, including Snakey Man and the actor Will J. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and the night raised a total of £807.14 for the cause, which largely, was the most important thing to come out of the night.
