UB40’s Ali Campbell talks about new single Cyber Bully Boys

It has been a turbulent year for Birmingham based reggae band UB40.

A bitter wrangle tore the band a part and left two rival acts using the UB40 name.

Now UB40 star Ali Campbell has written a song about his family rift and what he called a “campaign against him”.

The 55-year-old left the band in 2008 after selling more than 70 million records worldwide over a 30 year period.

He was joined by original members Astro and Mickey Virtue. But his estranged brothers Duncan and Robin Campbell also use the band name.

Ali joined Headline London to explain more.
