Wireless Festival 2015: Watch Skepta make surprise appearance with Drake

From Krept and Konan’s parade of unannounced guests to Lethal Bizzle popping up during Katy B’s set, Wireless 2015 has already been jam-packed with surprises.

Following his performance at the 10th birthday bash, Drake continued the celebration of the 10th anniversary of Wireless Festival last night (Jul. 3) at day 1 of the festival in Finsbury Park. Taking to the stage to perform a number of hits from his extensive catalogue, Drizzy also had a colossal surprise in store for the audience. Mid-way through his set, the Toronto rapper brought out Skepta to perform “Shutdown,” and, as Skepta does, he stole the show.  

It was definitely not a surprise that Drake and Skepta were finally going to get the chance to perform on stage together, as Drake has been showing the Grime MC a lot of love in 2015 - he even picked a track from the MOBO Award-winner to pair with a piece of modern art in his recent turn as a curator for Sotheby’s.

As Skepta’s appearance came to a close, Drake said:“Make some noise for one of the best to ever do this shit and he goes by the name of Skepta bruv.”  

Yep, this was definitely one of the biggest highlights of Wireless 2015 so far!
