Switching from a translucent tracksuit to an infrared aesthetic to match his latest album's artwork, Skepta has blessed Berlin-based platform COLORS with a special performance of "No Sleep". 

The urgent alarm bells underline lyrical allusions to the trials of hard work and success, and is a clear standout on Ignorance Is Bliss. An assertive delivery by the British emcee—complemented by his equally confident fashion sense—this session for COLORS is yet another show of Skepta's artistic brilliance. 

The BBK don has had a particularly busy week. Earlier today, Skepta was interviewed on Good Morning Britain, where he asserted himself as a role model, claiming: "I really want to be a voice that sparks change."

When questioned about grime being characterised as a problematic music, the star assured that music is in fact what enables him to "speak the truth and help youngsters get into music", and that "it's music that's saving everybody now."
