SUPPORT: Rio Ferdinand

MOVERS AND shakers from the music world are set to inspire budding music professionals at an event organised by the Rio Ferdinand Foundation (RFF), the award-winning south London based youth enterprise.

Comedian Max Da cab driver is to host the two-hour event, which will take place at London South Bank University (LSBU) on April 12 from 1pm.

The event’s panellists include Big Zuu, Justin ‘Merlin’ Emanuel Boreland and Anthony Goldsbrough, a tour manager and backing singer to numerous artists including Ed Sheeran, Olly Murs and Josh Groban.

Among the other panellists are female rap artist Alora as well as Amanda Maxwell, who is part of the music team at the Boiler Room, an online platform which streams live music sessions around the world.

Big Zuu, who released his first self-titled EP in August 2017 and has more than 20,000 followers on Instagram, said: “I am looking forward to the event and hope that what I have to say will inspire young people and help them make their mark in the music industry.”

A spokesperson for the Rio Ferdinand Foundation, which is based in St George’s Circus, Southwark, said: “We are really excited and fired up to deliver the LSBU/RFF music roadshow.

“The theme is music entrepreneurship and all panel members involved will share insights or stories relevant to their music journey, including showcasing their art forms via video footage and so offer inspiration to the student audience.”
