The film will be Simz ‘s first acting role since appearing as herself in a recent Marvel film Venom: Let There Be Carnage. In 2019, he starred as Shelley in his most recent season Top Boy.
In a five-star review of Simz’s “Sometimes I Might Be Introvert,” NMEDhruva Balram wrote: “Little Simz has a wild energy on this album, a relentless one who has to get everything out of her mind right now. It feels like closing the volume in a book, its last chapter written and archived.
With “Sometimes I Might Be Introvert”, Little Simz has created an almost perfect album that will serve as a marker for future generations to strive for. It is not too much to suggest that this establishes her work forever, fascinating her that she is one of the great ones “.
Meanwhile, the MOBO Awards announced the nominees for this year’s ceremony, with Dave, Ghetts, Little Simz and Arlo Parks leading the way.
The annual celebration of Black music and culture will return on Sunday 5 December at the Coventry Building Society Arena, with the event being streamed live on YouTube and the BBC.
