SMELLINGTON PIFF- My good friend Sean Peng dubbed me Smellington Piff. My names Welly¬†and people often called me Wellington. But Sean blurted it out in a moment of¬†madness when i was tryna think of a name for myself, and at first we all thought it was¬†ridiculous, but i really didn’t wana be known as Welly mc, haha,¬†so we used it for the first tracks and its stuck ever since. Thanks Sean
