Watch Our 2018 Hotlist Highlights Now!

It is fair to say that our 2018 Hotlist event at Birthday’s last Wednesday was a success!

The evening kicked off at 7pm and went on until almost midnight. There was so much talent in one room! With a fresh mixture of genres and styles on the night we had something refreshing from the Lotto Boyzz who also brought out Vianni, debuting their new single Bim Bam, falling under Afro Swing/ Afro Bashment.

NSG came through to perform their huge single, Yo Darlin, of the same genre as the previously mentioned act, was a little disappointing not seeing Geko come out to deliver his verse on the song, but the track definitely did very well last year and seeing it brought to life right in front of us was a very dope experience, and we can’t wait to see what the boys have in store for us in 2018. We know they will bring that fire yet again.

Erdz Boy rapper Mowgli touched down straight from Birmingham and definitely had the crowd going with his enchanting styles and authentic lyricism. There was also time for a great performance from Croydon’s very own Hardy Caprio, who is already having a great 2018 after already selling out his first UK tour – kicking off at the end of this month. With not much time left on the clock, the headline act of the night stepped up to bring it home as Yxng Bane ended the night on a high with a live acapella performance of Rihanna that you catch right at the end.

I am sure everyone is going to keep their eyes fixed on these acts to see if they have an epic 2018 as predicted. And we are sure they all will, enjoy the other acts performances too, Berna, Young T & Bugsey, Ambush and a few other special guest appearances were definitely standout performances for us on the night and the visuals above show exactly why!
