London native Kojo Funds gives us a guided tour of his home district of Canning Town, part of the borough of Newham in the capital's East End.
Canning town is a real diverse area; there are lots of people from different walks of life in one place. The atmosphere’s exciting, it gets really busy and it’s full of life. For me, it’s a great representation of London.
O2. It’s big, it’s exciting and it’s loud. When I perform, I love a big crowd... the energy is unexplainable.
The best clubs in my opinion are Excel and LA Lounge. The music and the vibes are always on point and I’m guaranteed a good time.
I never really bought any records you know? I have everything on my phone.
C Breeze Island, it’s a local Caribbean shop. If you like jerk chicken or seafood that’s the spot.
It’s got to be Fox Bar, definitely. Great drinks, good vibes
It has to be Kano’s rap battles - that’s a part of UK music history. I’ve heard so many stories of how iconic it was and how he used lyrically destroy people in those battles.
Barrier Park; it’s right on the river. It’s really nice there, especially in the summer.
I like the Thames Barrier, Its looks really nice a night.
I’m always in my car, it the easiest for me because I’m always on the go. I like to get around smoothly it’s the best way for me to jump in my car and go.
Gaazy - it means not right or moving correct.
Got to be Barrier Park again, nowhere more relaxing for a walk in Canning Town.
There’s nowhere in Canning Town to buy the clothes I like to wear - it’s not the worst thing in the world, but if there was a shopping centre that would be perfect!
The environment and the people, its friendly and inclusive - everyone’s welcome.
