Ray Blk: Midnight Chats – Episode 56

Rita Ekwere's ex-boyfriend told her his friend was dying so she wouldn't dump him

At the beginning of 2017, Ray Blk became the first unsigned artists to top the BBC Sound Of poll. The time had come for her to stop pushing away all the labels that had tried to sign her, and to bask in the glory of expensive meals on company credit cards.

We talk about this in this week’s podcast, but not before we reminisce about our shared university, the guy that told her his friend had cancer so she wouldn’t dump him, and what it’s like to PR soap with bullshit news stories.

Help keep Loud And Quiet going

As an independent title, it’s become harder than ever to make the numbers add up.

We never want to charge artists and labels for our content so are asking our readers and listeners if they can help.
