Skepta’s hometown Konnichiwa launch was a grand grime celebration – in photos

Skepta’s long-awaited new album Konnichiwa dropped on Friday, and the grime master wasn’t about to let the occasion pass without a party.

Cue a rowdy, sweaty spectacle last night at London’s KOKO, where he was joined onstage by JME, Novelist and many more.

FACT photographer Jordan Hughes was on hand to capture the action. Here’s how it all went down…
