Soul II Soul honoured in Brixton

Today Chuka attended a special plaque unveiling ceremony in Brixton for Soul II Soul – one of the UK’s most successful and iconic RnB groups.

The group were being honoured by PRS for Music, with a Heritage Award being unveiled on the front façade of the Electric (which used to be known as The Fridge) where the group played their first full live gig in 1991.

Commenting, Chuka said: “Soul II Soul’s impact on British music was astounding. The first ever gig I went to was seeing them at Brixton Academy in the early 90’s. For such a legendary band, Soul II Soul haven’t always had the recognition they deserve. It is fantastic that we can honour a home-grown London band in this way and celebrate the fantastic local music venues and thriving scene that make our live gigs and contribution to music the envy of the rest of the UK.”
