After months of teasing, Skepta has announced that his highly-anticipated new album ‘Konnichiwa’ will be released on 6th May.
The Grime MC, who has had worldwide success with songs such as ‘Shutdown’ and ‘Top Boy’, revealed the news via Instagram last night.
“#Konnichiwa the album, May 6th. Greatness,” he said.
It is expected that Skepta will try and make waves in the US with his new project – amid rumours that ‘Konnichiwa’ will feature an appearance from Drake.
The pair collaborated on a remix of Wiz Kid’s ‘Ojulegba’ last year and also linked up in London in February, where Drake announced that he was signed to Boy Better Know.
Meanwhile, Skepta also announced details of a new North American 'No Fear' tour.
The ‘Shutdown’ rapper will kick off his tour at Coachella on 15/16th April, and stop off in a number of cities including New York, before concluding in May. He will then return to London to play at Wireless Festival on 10th July.
