A nightclub in the UK is facing pressure from several student groups to cancel a live performance by British rapper Wiley scheduled for Saturday due to the artist’s anti-Semitic past.

Wiley, real name Richard Kylea Cowie, is scheduled to perform at Switch nightclub in Preston as part of the University of Central Lancashire (UCLAN) The Preston Freshers 2021 program events, which span two weeks in several locations.
