Gims on the “Sept à Huit” plateau on Sunday 6 June.


In full promotion of the reissue of his album “Le Fléau, Les Vestiges du Fléau”, Gims continues the interviews. Sunday, he was on “Sept à Huit” on TF1, for the portrait of the week led by Audrey Crespo-Mara. He will talk about music, his family but also the racism he suffered.
