Pharrell Williams and Childish Gambino preach to masses
THINGS turned political when US rapper Childish Gambino and N.E.R.D took Lovebox by storm.
Hot on the heels of president Donald Trump’s protest-filled visit to Britain, Gambino, real name Donald Glover, performed his racially charged hit This is America.
The singer/actor, 34, wasn’t the only one making political statements at Gunnersbury Park, west London.
N.E.R.D. frontman Pharrell Williams appeared to address Trump protesters, telling the crowd: ‘Don’t let nothing divide you. They’re gonna get old and die. You’re gonna change the world.’
The festival, which moved from Hackney’s Victoria Park this year, also saw The Internet, DJ Annie Mac and Mura Masa perform on Saturday.
