D-Jukes ready for HoopsAid

HoopsAid is set to take place on September 15th with various celebrities, Olympic, Paralympic and Battle-back stars set to join in the fun.

The Olympic Copper Box is set to host what should be a thoroughly enjoyable basketball occasion and one of the names involved is D-Jukes.

If you've not heard of D-Jukes, then you should have! He has been played in BBC Radio 1Xtra and you can have a listen to his song by clicking the play button next to it on THIS Charlie Sloth page.

D-Jukes is involved in both playing and performing at HoopsAid 2013 and has been involved in the official anthem 'Dreams' - alongside Sophia May and EckSell.

Speaking ahead of the event D-Jukes says he is glad he has the opportunity to give back to charity at HoopsAid.

He said: "At the event I will be performing and also playing, I've got my new song 'Good Times' which I will be singing at the event."

"It was a very easy decision to take part in HoopsAid as it's giving back and do something for people in need."

"It's very important [for people in the public eye] to use their following so people can help the cause and to get our fans to support it."

D-Jukes is working on a US|UK Radio Mixtape with the likes of Wretch 32 and Sophia May as his career goes from strength-to-strength.

He is not looking forward to seeing anyone in particular at the event but he is glad so many high profile people are involved.

He continued: "I'm happy to see everyone that is taking part as they are doing something for such a good cause."

"We will be playing against some pros, so it won't be that easy, but I'm looking forward to being involved."

"I've got a new Mixtape coming out as well as a new album called New York City Trafficking."
