Thursday gone Avelino one of the UK’s most talented rappers held his sold out headline show down at XOYO, which is known for hosting some of the finest talent over the years and the tradition kept on going.

His  music seems to have touched fans all over world, as walking into the venue the Backstaaage team spoke to some of the fans, one being from Canada who bought his ticket after only hearing one track – the power of music!

After BBC Radio 1 & 1Xtra’s DJ Charlie Sloth hyped up the crowd, Avelino graced the stage and performed tracks from ‘Old Fire, Young Flame’ and his current E.P -‘F.Y.O’ . His performance was testament to Time Out Londons review, rating his show the number one gig to see of the week. His down to earth persona tied in with his lyrical ability and wordplay captivated the crowd and the connection between him and his supporters was so real as they rapped along with his lyrics.

Avelino shared the stage with a line up of opening acts and guest appearances, such as; Wretch 32, Dave,Not3s, Tiggs da Author, and Dun D to name a few. We even had the opportunity to hear an exclusive track entitled ‘No Bullshit’ which was accompanied with some of his day ones sharing the moment on stage.

This night was a strictly ‘no bad energy zone’ and was topped off with a hyped performance of the track ‘Energy‘ where he gave out a few ‘nobadenergy’ hats and we managed to get one, so look out for them as they should be coming out soon.

We look forward to seeing what Avelino has next, in the meantime check out his E.P below.
