True his words Fredokiss’s influence showed in all its glory when he stole Carlsberg Urban Music Legacy at College of Medicine.
His entrance took close to 10 minutes due to the hype and the fact that Fredokiss wanted the whole of Ghetto Gutter Entertainment artists who were in the building (Akontheboard, Daredevils, Tuno) to go on set with him but the crowd mobbed in.
Leading up to his entrance, fans screamed his name, jumped about popping their drinks in the air, a spectacle worth a vibe of a true influencer.
After his set, he was thronged by crowds blocking his way and in his usual ghetto style entertained everyone until security manned by Aichocho had to whisked him out of the building.
