Will Smith in Brixton – Hollywood Star Takes a Stroll Around ‘London’s Harlem’08 March 2013
WIll Smith visits Brixton, South London.
Will Smith made an impromptu visit to Brixton, London, had a stroll around the streets with two Labour MP’s and visited St Martins in the Fields High School for Girls. Nice little day out there.
According to Dulwich MP Tessa Jowell the Fresh Prince Of Bel Air star had 'wanted to see London's Harlem'. This isn’t really Smith’s fault – without living in London, you view it’s boroughs on reputation – but Brixton has become somewhat of a trendy place to live of late. He probably didn’t take a walk around the artisan restaurants, vintage shops and organic birthday card stands in Brixton Village. Not very Harlem there. The locals followed him round, clearly bemused as to what he was doing down in South London. Lesley Morrison told a local paper: “When he walked in they just went wild. They were just so thrilled and happy. That goes for the staff as well, I thought some of them were going to pass out. To be kissed by Will Smith - I shall never wash my face again.”
