RIP DJ Vips 🙏🏻
Vips was the first person to give me my break in the music industry. He gave me a chance when no other UK label would look twice at me.
A genuine, kind and respectful man. No matter what decision I made in music he always respected it. Huge loss to our industry pic.twitter.com/wnC8C7XKLj
