Kanye West dedicated a new song to Jay-Z last night (August 20) during an intimate gig in London.

The show took place at Westminster Central Hall and was attended by around 500 fans and invited guests, as the rapper-producer celebrated bagging the UK Number One spot with new single 'Stronger' at the weekend (August 19).

West dedicated new song ’Big Brother’ to Jay-Z, and said that he said that was the reason he made music and because of this he was able to buy him mum a house.

Before the gig, which followed sets at this weekend's V Festival, guests were greeted by staff wearing graduation outfits and mortar boards, in reference to the name of his new album ’Graduation’.

West was backed by an all-female string section, backing vocalists, keyboardist and DJ.

During closer ’Touch The Sky’ ticker tape fell from the ceiling.
