‘Oh My God. Like, honestly, you have the whole world. Let me just have my four minute song.’

The onlooker said those spoken at subsequently got off and stood on the dancefloor.

And afterward’s Cakes’ friend Philip Henry took to Twitter to praise the controversial edict, writing: ‘I’m gagged at @CAKESDAKILLA at Battle Hymn kicking all the white folks off the stage and saying only black people are allowed! LMAOOOOOOOOOOOO.

Paraphrasing what his friend said in a subsequent tweet, Teen Vogue writer Henry added: ‘It’s Black History Month, shout out to the 3 black people at this party that didn’t come with me but also shout out to the white twinks and twink adjacents.” LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO’.

Cakes’ performance at the popular club night was backed by respected DJ Honey Dijon, who has been vocal about the difficulties of being a black trans woman in the music industry.
