DRILL MUSICIAN DRILLMINISTER ANNOUNCES HIS CANDIDACY FOR LONDON MAYOR 2020
Born and raised in south-east London, Drillminister is ‘The Streets Elected Voice’, representing the youth of Britain that politicians have previously ignored. His campaign for London Mayor will launch with a press conference at 6.30pm on Tuesday 28th January.
‘I see the residents of this great city not as statistics and numbers but as FAMdem. My main goal is to fight for a better future regardless of our differences.’
Drillminister is an internationally recognised musician who uses Drill as a tool to engage with a new generation of voters on political issues, such as the struggles of working people, austerity and rising levels of air pollution in the city.
Drill has garnered widespread media attention, having been cited by the UK Government as glamourising weapons and gang life. Against the persistent suppression of the genre, Drillminister has tirelessly worked to eradicate the stereotype of London UK Drill musicians as violent criminals. In 2018 he publicly turned the tables on the politicians that have targeted the scene by releasing his track Political Drillin’, quoting extreme, racist and violent language used by MPs.
Outside of his music career, Drillminister has championed black excellence, initiating and supporting the development of Pan-African zebra crossings in the Greenwich Borough.
As a candidate for London Mayor, Drillminister is the alternative to the long-standing elite. He is the clear choice for a radical new era of politics. Raised on a council estate and educated on the streets he lives and breathes the issues that will affect hardworking, vulnerable Londoners in the coming decade.
