I am a founder member of the youth creative agency PlatformLDN. Although having only existed for just over a year we have worked in partnership with Creative Media Network, Break Communications, and Shaftesbury Plc to put on the inaugural Soho Music Month. Soho Music Month was a series of 21 events delivered over 30 days in June to celebrate the diversity and talent within the Soho and Carnaby areas of London. Soho Music Month will be returning again in 2019 but in the meantime we have also secured a monthly radio show on Soho Radio. The show discusses a number of issues related to the creative industries as well as issues in popular culture alongside top tier guests and the music you need to be hearing. Guests so far have included Film Director and Actor Femi Oyeniran (Kidulthood, Adulthood, The Intent 1+2) and Natty Kasambala (editor at gal-dem magazine, radio personality, freelance journalist).
