Skepta Finishes Konnichiwa

In a recent interview with I.D. Skepta shares the news that he will be finishing his upcoming album ‘Konnichiwa’ this week.
According to Uniqlo Oxford Circus store re-launch last Thursday evening, Skepta mentioned that he spent ‘three years of his life’ working on this album.
Given the Japanese influences in the album name, Skepta’s first shows will be in Japan because of the album.
Skepta also uploaded the workings of the tracklist on Instagram captioning, ‘Official tracklist artwork by @Milkavelli616 #BBK #616 #LAIGON ⌛️’

Skepta seems eager and ready for his music to be released saying, ‘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 Konnichiwa 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.’
The star also mentioned his fashion brand as he recently been appointed Cultural Ambassador for clothing brand Uniqlo saying, ‘I'm gonna bring out my own brand soon. It's gonna be for the streets, for your everyday person who doesn't want to wear jeans all the time and wants to be comfortable.’
Although the album may be finished, there not yet an exact release date for the album but we can anticipate it coming around summer time.
