There isn’t much I can say about this guy that hasn’t been said. James is a beautiful beautiful soul with the world as his oyster. Eloquently spoken and passionately honest he is a credit to his medium. Often people shy away from addressing important topics but they are always at the forefront of James Massiahs’ subject matter. I hope we are witnessing just the beginning of a great contemporary poet.
We were commissioned to make 10 ‘Take It On’ films for BBC Radio 1.
These films aim to celebrate individuals in East London in the run up to BBC Radio 1′s Hackney Weekend at the end of June, and also Radio 1 and 1Xtra’s Academy, which opens on the 1st June and will be offering masterclasses and Q&A’s to thousands of young people from East London. To find out more about the Academy, email email@example.com
We’re very proud of the work we have done and the individuals we have managed to get onboard in this process. They are all in their own crafts a positive example of taking the lead in their careers. We would like to sincerely thank each and everyone of them for sharing their time, in some cases their homes, their crafts and ultimately the aspects of their lives they are most proud. Another big thank you to BBC Radio 1 for giving us the opportunity to tell the stories we wanted.
