The 'Forgiveness' rapper explains what it means to him for London to host the Olympic Games.

Wretch 32 says London has been "waiting a lifetime" to host the Olympic Games and promises today's London 2012 Olympic Games opening ceremony will be "a big one".

The 'Don't Go' rapper opened yesterday's (26th July) Olympic Torch Relay Finale presented by Coca-Cola concert in London's Hyde Park, treating the audience to an explosive set filled with his biggest hits to date.

Wretch says now the Olympic Games is finally here the country needs to enjoy it because it is unlikely to happen again for some time.

"This is it man," Wretch exclusively told Capital FM. "This is what we've been waiting for.

"We've been waiting a lifetime for this and it's here now, and it won't be here for another lifetime," he explained. "So tomorrow's a big one man."
