Chiedu Oraka, the Sound of northern working-class England, whose captivating energy makes the timid bystander feel a sense of belonging and the avid gig goer feels satisfied with taking a punt on the unknown. From Hip-Hop to Grime, and its acquaintance UK Garage. Tirelessly working at his craft, Chiedu has been lucky enough to support some of the UK's leading Hip-Hop and Grime MCs such as Akala, Wretch 32, Lunar C, Mikill Pane, Mo Stack, Stormzy, KRS One, Jaykae and Paigey Cakey.

"From humble beginnings on the streets of North Hull, to performing at Radio 1's Big Weekend 2017, the 29-year-old is fast becoming one of Yorkshire's leading grime artists." -Frankie Dunn, i-D
