Now those poor Chilean miners have to try and sort out Plan B’s accent.
Benjamin Paul Ballance-Drew, to give him to full title, got trapped several months ago in a strong estuary accent after two hundred tonnes of critical attention collapsed over his performance in ‘Harry Brown’ and his 2006 album Who Needs Actions When You’ve Got Words.
However, the singer has made several attempts to dig his way out of this commercially lethal rap avenue, firstly by buying a suit and secondly by singing in a falsetto American accent on his recent album The Defamation of Strickland Banks.
Fans and followers above the surface are said to be able to access all of Plan B’s accents through a tiny borehole that emerged in the song ‘She Said’, but fears are mounting that this change in direction may well itself become unstable in the coming weeks.
It is hoped that the Chilean miners, due to their lack of daylight and running water, will be disorientated enough to dig Plan B a path through his American singing accents and south London rapping pronunciation before the release of The Ballad of Belmarsh later this year.
