“I be da queen of da pack, I be da ting wit da glo.” Back with a new banger and a new name, Lulu Be. (formerly known as Leah Be.) finally released her first solo track titled “Rude Tings” produced by Lanre.

Another year, another case of the FOMO. We played ourselves in not going to Afropunk this year, but we’re gonna keep telling ourselves there’s always next year.
