Guvna B joins judging panel

25 Nov 2020

We are delighted to announce, in no particular order, our Grand Final 2020 VIP judges who will be joining the event live via Zoom on December 1st. We’ll be sharing who they are one by one so that you can get to know them and learn what they will be looking for in our Grand Finalists’ speeches.

Guvna B, otherwise known as Isaac Borquaye, is a double MOBO award winning rapper and author. 

We asked him, in your experience, what does it mean to find your voice?

“To be your most authentic self without fearing what others will think.”

Why is empowering young people important to you?

“I’m from a council estate where a lot of young people didn’t know they were worth something. When you know you have potential, it changes your frame of mind and gives your purpose and freedom.”

And, thinking about our young speakers, how can they provoke the change they want to see in the world?

“Think about why you started doing what you do, and allow it to spark passion every time you hold a microphone.”


Join us at the Grand Final, we will be live streaming the event from 6pm on Tuesday 1st December. Register to attend using the link below.
