Following the news that Tony Allen has had to pull out of FarmFest 2017, the festival's organisers have revealed that he has been replaced by none other than UK hip hop icon Roots Manuva.
Widely considered one of the finest rappers the country has produced, Manuva is best loved for his emphatically anglicised lyrics, with seminal 2001 album Run Come Save Me producing gems such as 'Witness (1 Hope)' and 'Dreamy Days'.
His latest album, Bleeds, dropped in 2016 winning plaudits for rapid rhymes and a socially conscious outlook and his headline slot at FarmFest is set to be a massive affair.
