British Poet Steps Up And Buys A Drink For His Twitter Followers In An East London Pub

A promise is a promise after all.

Posted on

In April last year, British poet/rapper Scroobius Pip promised to buy all his Twitter fans a drink if he ever reached 100,000 followers.

If I ever reach 100k followers I'm gonna arrange drinks in a pub with y'all. Remind me if I forget. It may take a while...haha.

Unfortunately for him, that actually happened earlier this month.

But, staying true to his word, he announced on his Facebook page that he would arrange an evening and buy a drink for anyone who turned up:

"This tweet was in April 2013.
Well look what's gone and happened…
Thanks for all the love!
I'm out of the country right now but, when I'm back I will stay true to my word and arrange a night where I will go to a specific pub (probably London) and buy one drink for however many of you turn up.
In fact, if you own or work in a pub that might be a good location for this then hit me up.
Feel free to give me a nice guy discount…"

And last night Scroobius Pip revealed the event would be taking place at a bar in Hoxton, east London.

Unsurprisingly, quite a lot of people turned up to claim their free drink and meet the rapper.
