M.I.A. is set to play a pro-Julian Assange event in London tonight (November 5th).
The singer has a history of supporting the controversial Wikileaks founder, who is sought by Swedish authorities.
Accused of rape, Julian Assange secreted himself in the Equadorian embassy in London for seven years, before being ejected earlier in 2019.
The 'Don’t Extradite Assange' event takes place in London later today - November 5th - with M.I.A. confirming her intention to perform to a fan on Instagram.

Once Upon a time there were men with beards...— M.I.A (@MIAuniverse) November 5, 2019
B 4 the bearded guys there were someone else I can't remember
Now it's Russians

I'm here for whatever sets truth free
Coz Jesus loves me.
