Guvna B, a double MOBO Award winning rapper and author from East London, was recently interviewed at the Everything Conference, the focus of which is how Christians can renew culture. Guvna B has faced challenges and disadvantages in life but has nevertheless achieved some remarkable things. How has God has used these weaknesses or the disadvantages in his life to more effectively serve Him?
Here are some extracts from the interview as Guvna B reflects:
“Well, I grew up on a council estate in East London and a big disadvantage would be the lack of opportunity…
I actually started out rapping about girls, guns, drugs, and I realised that I didn’t do drugs, didn’t have a gun, didn’t get any girls…
I’d say the only thing more exhausting than standing out and being true to yourself is waking up every day and having to put on a mask and pretend that you’re someone that deep down you know that’s not you…”
His talk about being true to yourself and God, despite the pressures of growing up in a tough area is really inspiring and honest. If you would like to read more of Guvna B’s reflection visit:
