WATCH: Will Smith Raps Fresh Prince Theme, School Girls Go Wild
It’s been more than 20 years after the Fresh Prince Of Bel Air first aired, Will Smith is still getting jiggy with it.
Yesterday, Smith delighted the ladies of St Martin-in-the-Fields High School for Girls in south London with a surprise performance. Member of Parliament Chuka Umunna, who is an admitted fan of the TV show, planned the assembly and arranged for the “rapper’s” appearance.
Smith was in London accompanying his son Jaden on the UK leg of his tour with Justin Bieber when Umunna invited him to head the special event. School staffers tried to keep Smith’s appearance quiet right up until he came out and closed the assembly with an unplanned performance of the iconic theme song.
Even though the hit 90s show hasn’t been on the air since 1996, fans amongst the under 35 crowd can still be found everywhere you go. All you have to do is drop the starting phrase, “In West Philadelphia, born and raised…”
The Fresh Prince himself doesn’t mind joining in here and there.
