My redeemer My re-deeeemer.
Thank you, Abraham.
And may God continue to multiply his blessings on you.
Amen! It is now testimony time.
- Amen.
- Amen! Who would like to share first? Please step forward.
Praise God.
All the time.
- Praise Jesus.
- Amen.
Lately I've been experiencing some financial problems.
First, the cost of food went higher, then, my daughters needed new shoes for school, and then, the devil influenced the energy companies to raise their prices again! Eh, pure wickedness.
I looked to the sky, and I asked, "Father God, how can I begin to pay all this?" Hm.
Then, I went to my purse, and, lo and behold, what did I see there? What did you see, sister? £50! Praise Lord! And who would like to share their testimony next? Please, madam, step forward.
Fam, I think I'm just going to call them up, you know? Chill, bruv.
If they said it's coming, it's coming.
You want to have a little more faith, Ash.
Thank you, driver.
OK.
What's going on, bruv? Ey, mandem.
- I don't know if I can.
- Forget Jodie, bruv.
Yeah, bruv.
It's like the man said.
It was all a dream.
Mandem on the wall in a limousine.
Yo, are we rollin'? YOLO, baby! YOLO! Stop it.
Listen, Abena, you can't keep doing this in front of people, OK? Take me somewhere private and I won't have to.
We're in church.

And to think, you only caught the end of it, brother Yemi.
It was my best performance to date! Yeah, sorry about that, Abraham.
So, how come you were late? You weren't involved in any worldliness, were you? Don't worry about me, OK? I just hope your good mother isn't too disappointed.
Listen, leave my mum out of this, OK? - I didn't mean to cause of fence - Well, know your place and shut your mouth.

Must be annoying, though, having Ash getting all excited over my brother.

This ain't happening ever again.
Yeah, yeah, standard.
So, walk me through your proposal Dee, why don't you go get us suttin' to eat? Why do I have to go? Ah, come on, babes, you know it tastes better if you bring it.
Fine.
But you better make it worth my while when I get back.
Standard.
I got big plans for us.
And that's how you school your gyal.
Why? Don't you like me any more? It's not about what I like.
Abena, if my mum found out what we've been doing Your mum?! Your mum? If my dad found out, do you know what he'd do? Yeah, why take the risk? Cos I can't spend the rest of my life doing what I'm told.
Then maybe you should try talking to him or something.
Yeah, I should.
The way you talk to your mum about slipping her money? That's different, Abena.
It is different.
Cos I make one little mistake and my dad sends me back on to a plane to Ghana.
But you, you can do anything you want with your life, Yemi.
So stop acting scared and start living it.
Onwards and upwards.
Yes, Benny.
- Yes, Benny.
- Ta-ta-taaa! "Hey, you're through to Ashley's answerphone, just leave a message or" - Thought he sounded good, you know? - I know, man.
You sound surprised.
Nah, but, if you'd asked me who I'd make it this far with, I never would have said Bangs.
Well, you're here now, cuz.
Let's do a launch night and showcase our acts to the endz.
We can go all out, red carpet and everything.
All right.
Sounds good to me.
Yo, fam, wa gwan? Yeah, yeah, you busy? Allow this.
I got to go.
What, you're going to bounce while I'm eating? Oh, sorry, was I supposed to tidy up after you, yeah? Nah, I'm just saying, you're my girl so I expect you to be loyal, like.
Nah, there's a difference between loyalty and obedience, you know.
Oi, where you going? I thought you was supposed to be my princess.
Then start treating me like one, Marl-on.
Yemi! Oh, nah, sorry, I've got to go back out.
Well, dinner is ready.

Yemi, just go and wash your hands.
Yes, Mum.
KNOCK AT DOOR Wassup, bruv? So where's the rest of the group, bruv? Coming.

Well, I'm here now, bruv.
You get me? Let's make music.
Let's make music.
What you got here? Abraham? Hello, Auntie.
Erm, I'm so sorry but I am concerned my brother, Yemi, is being corrupted by worldliness.
What's going on here? Just working on some new bars.
Yeah.
I can see that.
Where's Ashley? Exactly, mate.
Where is he? Cos he ain't here.
But Fury's here and he wants to help.
- No, Jay, he wants a cut of the action.
- Whoa, Dee! If you just calm down for a second At least hear what we've been working on.
If you don't like it after, I will bounce.
Just Just give it a chance.
All right, what is it? Well, it's the same verse we was working on before but, well, I've got a new verse.
And it's pretty sick.
I'm not going to lie.
Dee, what you saying, you going to give it a listen? Please? Yes! But we don't take no prisoners actually It ain't easy when it comes so naturally They say three's a crowd but they're crazy Loud and proud and we're out of this galaxy Got to move with the time I ain't that younger you once knew I've made up my mind about you I was blind now I'm leaving them Girl, there my hand cos this is our time Talking about a dream We're living it Our names on the streets They're screaming it All the kids in the endz They're tweeting it If you're looking for a banger You're hearing it Fire in the booth, doing our ting The phones so rusty they can't go ping We fold cos this is our music This is our life so we won't take our eyes off the prize, so tight.
Yes, Yemz! Nah, something's missing.
Yo, don't forget the horns, bruv.
OK, Jay, we'll go for a take, yeah? Um, Davina, do you want to try your idea for the chorus? Let's go for it.
For all of my life I felt I was winging it Licking girl when I weren't even feeling it Drawing the girl then my rhythm would fail I didn't care about all of them links cos I knew very well I see my one, don gone done The realness she brings? I can't carry on Thirsty movements That's all our song Living this feeling I's breaking the ceiling Bigger than bling and all of them tings The youngers are here and you better listen You might call us youths but there ain't anything missing If you looking for hype then we ain't the type When it comes to the bars we don't need to fight This ain't Compton or NYC This is south London, bruv You get me? Hotter than the sun The sun, the sun You know we are one Are one, are one Hotter than the sun The sun, whoa-oh Hotter than the sun The sun, the sun You know we are one Are one, are one Hotter than the sun The sun, who-oh Yes! That's what I'm talking about, fam! Real emotion, you can't fake that, bruv! Well done, guys, man.
So, what now? Well, we can't show it to Ash.
So we keep that shtoom, yeah? Until we figure out what to do about Boss Fury.
Until then, we've made a hit.
I'm talking proper hits, boys and girls.
Yeah, I best be off before my mum notices I'm gone.
Listen, I'll bell ya later, Yemz.
See ya.
So, um, how's things with you and Marl-on? You good? It's OK.
Just Just OK? I better be going.
Tonight, I'll be celebrating the launch of this fine studio.
He's a criminal.
He's a changed man.
I am not performing without Jay.
Yeah, neither am I.
This is the last time you'll see Abena.
You said when we did what we did that you two have already broke up.
- Did I? - Cos I know you love me really.
I don't love you.
I warned you about troubling Davina again, didn't I? You might just fall off the roof accidentally, innit?
