This Wednesday night I’ll be on stage at Sadller’s Wells to talk on why I accepted my OBE as pictured below. The discussion is held after a show called The Letter by Jonzi D about how he declined his. I’ll be sat alongside Omar Lye-Fook. He’ll also discuss why he accepted. The alternate view will be represented by Benjamin Zephaniah who like Jonzi declined his award. The mediator is broadcaster and journalist Brenda Emmanus.
I drove through the iconic gates at Buckingham Palace to receive my medal from the queen of England. What do you think? Should I have accepted? I’ll read out the most insightful comment on stage. At 4pm Monday 14th Oct you and I are informed this event is CANCELLED due to injury. The questions remain.
