Nowadays, people may not recognise this Star by his full name
but mention Guvna B and you will likely attract rave reviews
of his gospel music. The 23-year-old performer appeared in
the first edition of Rare Rising Stars, when his song ‘Kingdom
Skank’ caused a welcome stir on the urban gospel music scene.
Using a pseudonym which pays tribute to his upbringing on
a council estate in East London, Isaac has since sold out the
Hackney Empire, headlined London’s famous Jazz Café and
supported American gospel music heavyweights Kirk Franklin,
Mary Mary, Fred Hammond and Marvin Sapp on their UK tours.
He was the 2009 recipient of the Gospel Music Awards and
Urban Music Awards Best Gospel Artist accolades and 2011
saw one of Isaac’s biggest achievements to date: winning the
MOBO Award for Best Gospel Artist.
That same year, Isaac was invited by Prime Minister David
Cameron to an Easter reception at Downing Street for leading
Britons in the Christian community. As well as his musical
achievements, Isaac was honoured for his work as a celebrity
ambassador for The Prince’s Trust, the Terence Higgins Trust
and Youth for Christ, positions which Isaac uses to campaign
on issues of youth engagement and HIV and AIDS awareness
The Premier Radio DJ, who believes that his message can burst
out of the four walls of the church, releases his second album,
‘Odd One Out’ in summer 2012.
