After 15 years of broadcasting, Channel U went off air in 2016.

On the comeback for Channel U, Oyeniran told the BBC, "We wanted to create something that celebrated the very important musical genre that is considered to have been the foundation of all the different scenes that exist at the moment."

'Against All Odds' is a “visual celebration of the scene that the grime’s forefathers created”, and you can watch the trailer here:
