Come vibe with the crowd and party the night away. Hop to the best Urbaan tracks DJ FLEX has to offer, and raise a glass in remembrance of the one and only Long Boi! Best of all 20 per cent of all profits will go to the RSPCA.”

This comes after The University of York officially confirmed that Long Boi had passed away this morning. In a joint statement on Instagram, the uni and SU said: “Following a period of almost two months without a confirmed sighting of Long Boi, we are today forced to conclude that he has passed away.”
