Watch: Kurupt FM unveil their go-to karaoke tunes

At Kurupt FM karaoke night, there's a bountiful buffet on the table, including Bob Marley, UK Apache and Alanis Morissette.

The team joined Yahoo Entertainment UK for a live Q&A to promote their new feature-length outing People Just Do Nothing: Big In Japan, and the topic of karaoke cropped up.

"They don't have it on a lot of machines but I'll just get them to bring a USB. UK Apache Original Nuttah," said MC Grindah (Allan Mustafa) when asked for his go-to track. 

"Obviously we know yours," he added, gesturing to colleague DJ Beats (Hugo Chegwin). 

"He does, and I hope you don't mind me saying this, an absolutely incredible rendition of Bob Marley No Woman, No Cry."

Beats was only able to carry out a brief rendition of the song during the Q&A, though Chabuddy G (Asim Chaudhry) noted that it "felt like Bob Marley was in the room".

Grindah, meanwhile, quipped that Beats's performance of the track was "sort of Nickelback versus Bob Marley".

Beats said: "I can't because you made me do it earlier and it has caused an issue in my throat."

Chabuddy, meanwhile, said Lionel Richie's Hello was his own karaoke choice, while Steves (Steve Stamp) said he'd take on "anything by Alanis Morissette".

Grindah added that Steves's version of Zombie by The Cranberries is also a crowd-pleaser.
