The album is coming soon.

Skepta has revealed that he is finishing his highly-anticipated new album ‘Konichiwa’ this week. 

The Grime MC, who recently crashed a Section Boyz show with Drake, revealed the news in a new interview with iD Magazine

“I’m finishing my album ‘Konichiwa’ this week. Finished! Done!” he said. 

“Three years of my life encapsulated on a CD.”

He also revealed that the album’s Japanese theme has helped him books shows in the South East Asian country.

“I cannot believe this. I'm going to Japan in a minute to do my first show ever, because of my album,” he said.

“I want my whole Konichiwa setting to be correct when I go there.”

“But I've never been to Japan, so to go in May with this, I'm buzzing. Life is sick, don't cry for me when I die.”

Skepta’s upcoming album is rumoured to include collaborations from Drake and Kanye West. 

He teased the official tracklist via Instagram earlier today:
