Last week I awoke to messages about the tragic event involving Lukey, I reacted with confusion and upset like most who knew him or knew of him would. I couldn’t make sense of the situation and for it to happen so close to home was definitely a blow. I sat on Twitter and Instagram all day reading the tributes as it sank in, Watching the way the media portrayed such a promising young man was upsetting but seeing all the dedicated posts from the people that have had genuine encounters with him were heart warming. It was a sad day for Tottenham, North London even. I sent my condolences to his Big Brother as I know how it feels to be in a situation similar to this, Losing my little cousin Kasey 4 Years ago.
It took a while for it to sink but I knew there were people who felt it much more than I had, such as Skepta & the MWF who were closer to him than most. Today you can definitely see that connection with Skepta’s Tribute to Lukey entitled ‘Lukey World’. This track is definitely something that’s going to be on repeat for the foreseeable future and is definitely a heart warming gesture from a dear friend of Lukey’s. Death is never easy to deal with and once again I would like to send my condolences to his family and friends. Love Like King Lukey! Check out the Tribute below.
For those of you that are based in North London should attend the 7-a-side football fundraiser in memory of Lukey.
Peace & Love!
