Septimus Prime a young and talented artist/songwriter from South-East London. Mostly known for his comedy sketches on Facebook, YouTube, Vine, Instagram, with thousands of followers.
Septimus was a former football player at Charlton Athletic Academy from the age of 10 until he was 15. However at the age of 15 he suffered from a heart problem that prevented him from playing football. Septimus however did not dwell on the fact that he couldn’t play football anymore but found the voice deep inside him that had been dormant for so long and took up singing and ultimately fell in love with music.
In September 2014, Septimus became the head of charity called PL9, a charity made in memory of a 16 year old boy called Phillip Lamin who had died whilst playing football due to heart failure. The charity has since raised over 10,000 pounds through fundraisers and events, in which some were led by Septimus Prime. Septimus has said that he wants to use his story to inspire others that when life sometimes creates problems, we should never give up and fight until the end. A message that has inspired many of the young people across the nation.
As his love for music grew, he started posting videos of his singing on Facebook, YouTube and Instagram as well as comedy sketches he had created in his spare time. In just over a year Septimus’ videos started generating views from 1000 to over 500,000 and more. Septimus was eventually discovered in November 2014 by Stevie Nash and was signed with Playaville Records in that same month. Septimus has generated a fan base of over 150,000 people stretching from young kids to teenagers to young adults and more across social networks.
Septimus has since perform in schools, free concerts, special appearances and fundraisers.
