Tinie Tempah wows the crowd at MTV Staying Alive’s charity event, FOUND

For the lucky few who got their hands on tickets to FOUND last week, they were treated to exclusive performances of Tinie Tempah’s brand single No Letting Go and Tallia Storm’s single Social Security—all in aid of stopping HIV/AIDS.

Any event hosted by West End stars, the Supreme Fabulettes (of Viva La Divas fame), is sure to be as edgy as it is entertaining and the Fabulettes delivered entertainment by the bucket loads. See for yourself:

Our Executive director, Georgia Arnold, eloquently explained to the audience why HIV is still a deadly threat, especially to young people. In her words: “the global AIDS repsonse is neglecting young people, and as a result AIDS-related deaths have gone up by 50% among adolescents. AIDS is now the leading cause of death for adolescents in Africa and second leading cause worldwide.”

In true MTV Staying Alive style, we put the fun in FUNdraiser with a spectacular funfair. Our macho guests tested their strength on the hammer game while others competed in some indoor horseracing, all while feasting on candy floss, popcorn, and presseco. Yum!

And best of all, hidden away in the corner, was a mystical GIF-generator—transforming the frenetic frivolity of our guests into vaguely passable social media. I leave you with a GIF from the MTV Staying Alive team:
