UK Rapper Chipmunk spread some Christmas cheer in Tottenham last week as he performed a few of his hits and turned on the Christmas lights in his north London borough.

Chipmunk told the crowd that he was proud to be from Tottenham, and thanked his previous school, Gladesmore Community School, for their support:

 I had a lot of support at Gladesmore, to tell me that it was okay to be me. Tottenham is a beautiful place. It doesn’t matter where you come from. If you believe in yourself, you can make it happen.

The event is one of several following the October launch of the I Love Tottenham campaign, which encourages residents to show support for local traders, and to celebrate the strength of community spirit in Tottenham following the August riots.
