Big Smo from the A&E Network's reality show Big Smo visited kids in Theatre Now's Superstar Academy.
This week's creative arts camp is being sponsored by both the Superstar Academy and the Wilmington Police Department to try to get area kids involved with more positive activities and off of the streets.
Big Smo said that is something that is important to him and one of the reasons he wanted to hang out with area kids.
"I come from a very small town in middle Tennessee where there wasn't a lot of things to do and when you don't have options, options fall in your lap sometimes those options aren't the best one, especially for young people," Big Smo said.
He performed for the kids and also performed with them.
This week the campers were working on their own music video, so they asked Big Smo for his advice when it comes to getting involved in the music business.
Big Smo is known for his blend of country and rap music.
