London College of Creative Media (LCCM) will be hosting Mathew Knowles in the ‘Box Talk’ event scheduled for Wednesday 17 March.
The virtual event will star Mathew Knowles, manager of Destiny’s Child and father to Solange and Beyoncé, who just became the most-awarded woman in Grammys history with her 28th win.
