Skepta announces release date, tracklist and pre-order for ‘Konnichiwa’

After what has felt like centuries, Skepta has FINALLY announced a release date for his album “Konnichiwa”.

The highly-anticipated project, which some had thought would never arrive due to its delay, is set to drop on May 6th.

Announcing the date via his Instagram, it’s set to drop a mere week after – still unconfirmed BBK artist – Drake’s ‘Views From The 6’.


Questions will rage as to whether the pair will appear together on either album, as we slowly approach a very interesting fortnight of music.

Having both featured on Wizkid’s remix of “Ojuelegba”, surely recent proceedings suggest they are set to make a joint track together?


Only recently we saw an image of Piff Gang’s Mikaveli drafting up the tracklist and artwork for Konnichiwa – unfortunately out of focus – appear on Skepta’s Instagram.

One thing that’s guaranteed will be the rumours and hype floating around social media as the glittered date draws closer.

We sure hope there are some surprises in store, but for now, we can only speculate. Keep your eyes peeled.


The announcements are still coming!

This afternoon Skep presented us with the tracklist for the long awaited project, and announced to fans through his Instagram that the album would be available to pre-order from midnight tonight.

The tracklist confirms thoughts that Skeppy is putting “It Ain’t Safe” featuring Young Lord, 2015 anthem “SHUTDOWN”, “That’s Not Me” featuring JME and most recent single featuring D Double E and ASAP Nast, “Ladies Hit Squad”, on the highly anticipated album, but considering as three of those four tracks include features, and the featured artists don’t (as yet) appear on the tracklist, there is definitely still hope of more surprises in store.

Will we find out when the pre-order drops tonight? We live in hope.

Roll on May 6th!
