The company shared a picture of the Boy Better Know themed cake before the party had started
A cake company accidentally ruined Skepta‘s surprise birthday party this weekend (Sep 19).
The grime MC knew nothing about the birthday party arranged by his family and Boy Better Know crew until cake company Cake Create shared a photograph of the cake they had made for him on Instagram, tagging him in their post.
Skepta’s sister, Beats 1 radio presenter Julie Adenuga, wrote beneath the Instagram post, “WOW! This was supposed to be a surprise.”
Boy Better Know MC Jammer added, “Fam he ain’t even seen the cake yet you ruined his birthday!! You should not be posting this its unprofessional. And I will be taking further action.”
SBTV shared the original post on Facebook. See below:
Despite the surprise cake post, it appears Skepta still enjoyed his birthday. He later took to Instagram to thank his fans, writing, “Thank you for the birthday cards, messages and presents. What a fucking year, absolute mad ting. Unconditional love for everybody that shared positive energy with me, I pray for a progressive, ego free, happy year with you all. Love

Slaves recently confirmed they had recorded a song with Skepta, but have no firm plans to release it.
Speaking to Julie Adenuga as part of her Beats 1 radio show, the band confirmed that they had been in the studio with Skepta after performing with him at a festival earlier in the year. A collaboration came from that session but may never see the light of day.
“The track is there and we’ve heard it, so it’s exciting but there are no plans for it as yet,” Laurie Vincent of Slaves said. “We both really like what each other are doing, and I think we’re both on a very similar path. He’s leading the charge and I feel like we’re following the example he’s setting.”
“So hopefully it will come out one day but y’know it’s quite exciting that there are no plans for it. It might just pop up one day and we might just decide to do a video for it tomorrow.”
