How's this for an unlikely duo? Reggae star Shaggy will team up with Boris Johnson tomorrow to encourage more Londoners to become mentors.
Shaggy is in London to headline this Sunday's 'One Love Peace Festival' at Wembley Arena, and will meet with the Mayor's Mentoring Ambassador Ray Lewis to encourage adults to join the 1,800 who've already signed up to be mentors. The scheme will target young black boys aged 10-16 across London who are perceived to be most at risk of crime.
Shaggy, of course, is best known in the UK for his 2000 hit 'It Wasn't Me', a catchy song about denial and infidelity, which featured the memorable lines:
'Honey came in and she caught me red-handed /
Creeping with the girl next door'
'To be a true player you have to know how to play /
If she say a night, convince her say a day /
Never admit to a word when she makes a claim'
