Lowkey Quits Music
Last night, Lowkey wrote a Facebook status announcing that he was to "step away from music" to concentrate on studying. The political activist has managed throughout his career to keep and expand his loyal legion of fans, despite the fact that he has had little or no mainstream support...
The 25-year-old wrote: "After many months of contemplation, I have decided to step away from music and concentrate on my studies. Maybe at some point I will get back into it again but at this stage, I feel I should direct my energy in different, more helpful directions."
He added: "The ego is a destructive thing, and I feel this business and these social networks in particular have a tendency to feed it in an unhealthy way. I will be deactivating this page. Thank you for all those who have supported me over the years. See you on the other side, people."
