Jameela Jamil hosts star-studded Why Not People? launch event

Jameela Jamil hosted the launch event for Why Not People? – a brand new music and events members club for disabled people – at the Troxy.

The TV presenter, who struggled with disability for years after being injured in a car crash, was on hand to run proceedings on Wednesday night, joined by the likes of Dionne Bromfield, Aluna Francis and Shingai Shoniwa.

After posing for snaps on the red carpet at the East London venue, the stars headed inside to watch Tinie Tempah take to the stage to headline the launch night.

The pop star, who is currently celebrating his sixth number one single, spoke to The Evening Standard about the issue of venue inaccessibility for disabled people earlier this week.
