The event is being organised on Saturday 7 May, between 6.30pm and 10.30pm at ULU, London WC1E 7HY.
It includes presentation of Smiley Culture music videos and a panel debate. It will be chaired by Sukant Chandan – Sons of Malcolm; Merlin Emmanuel – nephew of Smiley Culture, Lee Jasper, Dr Lez Henry and Isis Amiak
Tragic rapper-cum-Dj Smiley Culture’s death has already brought about a demand for carrying out vital changes to legislation to possibly minimise the numbers of suspicious deaths.
The development assumes significance as suspicious deaths come out to be one a week for the past decade.
The demand came during a protest rally organised for demanding a public probe into Smiley’s death.
Smiley Culture, alias David Emmanuel, died from a stab wound following a dawn raid by five Met police officers on his house in Warlingham.
The police has been claiming he stabbed himself, but the family is disputing the claim.
