The CEO of Uncle John’s Bakery Samuel Mensah – also known as Xploder – has sadly passed away from coronavirus.

Samuel was known for appearing on grime tracks such as “Mission Riddim” alongside D Dark, Scrufizzer, Lady Lykez, Roachee, Maxsta and Zeph Ellis, as well as D Dark’s “Be Smart” Remix with Ms Banks and Scrufizzer.

In addition to establishing a name for himself in the music sphere, Samuel was also well known in the baking industry and was the CEO of London-based Ghanaian bakery business Uncle John’s, which celebrated its 25th anniversary last year.

Many figures within the scene such as J2K, Risky Roadz, Saskilla and more have taken to social media to pay tribute to Samuel.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the friends and family of Samuel Mensah at this difficult time.
